Subject: Remove Crystals

Wondering if anyone can help, I've glued (E6000) pear crystals to the neckline of a completed (velvet) dress, however, I now realise that they are positioned incorrectly. Does anyone know how I can get them off without damaging the velvet (or putting the collar out of shape). Is there a way? They are on for two days now. Thanks in advance.

There is no way to get crystals applied to velvet with E6000 off. Do remember that the costume will be seen from afar so if the problem is just an alignment one it will never be noticed. (NT)Sorry it's not better newsWednesday, May 11, 07:29:43am

If you carefully heat the crystal/glue the glue will soften enough to slide around. But you will never get the glue completely off velvet without a noticeable mess. (NT)meWednesday, May 11, 09:40:32am

As above, can't remove the glue entirely. You could make patches of outlined crystals and sew them on to cover any glue damage. Or use small crystals to cover the damage. (NT)depending on design of course.Wednesday, May 11, 12:55:13pm
