    Same here and here, little bit of product. I want the pointy part, corner here to go into that little V. Again put the pointy corner into the pointy part. Like that.

This liquid is awesome for using to attach embellishments. So, small bead, not too dry, not too wet, nice medium ratio. Spread it out to the sides a little. Tuck that middle up a little bit. Pick up your bow, place it on,…
