2)  Allow to completely dry.  It only takes about 10-15 minutes.  Once the design is dry, cover the entire back of the glass gem with a different color polish.  When finished, the “design” will be covered by the background color.

3)  Allow the background color to dry completely.  Once dry, attach 3/4″ Silver Pin Back, Tie Tack, Ceramic Magnet, or Jewelry Bail to the back of the glass gem with E6000.

4)  The E6000 will be dry within an hour or so.  Check first before wearing!  E6000 is a great adhesive that will hold securely and is flexible even once it dries.
