Step 2: Find the right place to display your art at home
After making your choice, you need a proper place to display your final creation. No need to think too much though, you can just place it in a corner of your office or on your bedroom walls, so don't hesitate to start out on this fun and creative activity with your own free time or with the entire family.
But what about the place where you will be making your art? For this, you will need a desk with enough space to lay the canvas down flat and some extra room to put the accessories. We would recommend having a nice and tranquil place to indulge the work. Finally, and this is important, please make sure that you don't let kids under 10 years old anywhere near the rhinestones: they are a serious choking hazard for the little ones!
Step 3: Complete knowledge of the kits
Usually, everything that you need will be included in the complete kit. A high quality canvas with the pattern that you have chosen, small bags of rhinestones color coded, a container to place and sort the rhinestones into the correct orientation, a pair of pliers, a stylus and finally a glue plate to apply the rhinestones. These are the necessary tools to finish your art work. There may also be optional accessories like a light pad that illuminates the background so that you can identify the colors with more ease.
First, you need to remove the protective film off the canvas and observe the different colors that are marked on the canvas. Choose one to start with.
Then, you need to find the right bag of rhinestones that you want to start with and put a few into the container. Lightly shake the container to put them into the right orientation.
Finally, take the rhinestones using the pliers and stick them to the right marked zone on the canvas. Don't forget to align the rhinestones with a ruler. And of course you will need to use the stylus to take a bit of wax glue and take the rhinestones with the stylus to apply them to the canvas.
