I saw one yesterday on the back of a van when leaving the mall. A quick search and a few came up on ebay and of course China manufacturers. I was not able to find any info on how it is done so Sandyjo & Charles if you run across something please update us on it.

Thanks,
Katrina

how about self adhering stones on the cling and you wont have to worry about heat..but i wonder if the weight may affect the cling clinging to a window.
wow, this is over a year old..did you find a solution?

I was looking at this macro but needed more info before I purchased it. I emailed Jeff to ask questions about it but have not gotten a reply. Maybe you can tell me. What I want to know is once you hit fill, can you resize the objects, and can you adjust one shape or will all of them move a once? I watched the video but did not see this covered. When I fill a shape, I want to make sure that I can adjust the pattern if I need to.

Thanks for your help.

Katrina.

By the way I hope your were referring to the Super Fill macro.

Guys this is what i have been doing,
If you are going to glue them on which i have been doing, with gem tac, on the window cling, you have to make sure and leave lots of extra window cling material,,
the stones are raised, and wont let the cling make contact with the window, so you have to cut it double if not triple the size so it can make contact and not be so heavy for the cling to grab..
I just keep my designs simple for windows,,
I hope this helps untill we all figure out another application,
MMM

Monkey,

When you say window cling, are you talking about those window decals for the car windows that have a kid's name and their sport? The ones on the back of every Suburban and minivan in town?

If that's the same thing you're talking about, I would love to have one of those with my company name on the back of my car with rhinestones on it.

I would love to learn how to do that......

:)leap,
Are talking about the sticky window clings for cars,, houses,, anything glass,,,

when we do something like this, we have to keep it simple or the weight of the stones will not let the cling hold up because of the weight,,

so get good window cling,

this is not vinyl,,, but window cling

Now if you put your vinyl out side the window, you could glue the stones to the outside of the vinyl,,
application would be tricky to get bubbles out, but with a popsickle stick, i think it could work,,
if some one gets a chance before i do to try this let us know,, this would eliminate the cling..

I hope I am not confusing you guys
MMM:)

Sandy Jo,

I am interested in doing the window decals with rhinestones. How you doing it and what material do I need? I have a breast cancer dinner next weekend and thought it would be neat to have some there. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tricia

I finally got close enough yesterday to a rhinestone window cling. It was of an apple given to a bunch of teachers. It was actually made with acrylic rhinestones which are much lighter than glass rhinestones and were glued on to the window cling. I now see how using acrylic stones keeps from weighting down the cling and it sticks to the window very well. I placed it on and off several times just for the heck of it.

HI,
Yes,, flatback rhinestones are used and i glue then straight onto the cling,, I have used glass, and it is heavier,, than the acrylic, but the sparkle you get from the glass, is worth getting good cling,,
Have fun,, someting like a breast cancer ribbon should be fine using small glass stones,, Have fun

I heard about it a month or so ago, but you have to have their system to get it, some of us use other systems.

Your probably do need their system. I was told you can't even buy rhinestone supplies from them unless you have their system.

So do you just use the mylar tape to take out of template and then put glue on back of rhinestones and then place on cling. I assuming you stick cling to inside of window not the back of the window. Is that correct?
