Crystallising wedding veils can be a very lucrative and enjoyable business venture. You can also use your crystallisation skills to bling up your own wedding veil when the time comes.
If you’re looking to create stunning, high-quality wedding veils, you’ll want to make sure you’re using Swarovski flatback crystals. These are the highest quality crystals you can invest in; guaranteeing maximum sparkle and beauty.
Here, we’ll reveal some of the best tips to use Swarovski flatback crystals to create a beautiful, magical wedding veil.
Non-hotfix or hotfix Swarovski flatback crystals?
One of the first things you’ll need to decide is whether you’re going to use hotfix or non-hotfix Swarovski flatback crystals. When you’re attaching crystals to fabric, hotfix do tend to be the best option. They attach much more securely, and they can easily be applied with a hotfix applicator.
Choosing the right colour
Once you know what type of crystals you’re using, it’s time to choose the colours. Mostly, the clear crystals tend to look the more exquisite on a wedding veil. However, there are other options available.
You could add crystals which produce a rainbow colour effect, or Swarovski flatback crystals with a subtle hint of colour. Ideally, you’ll want to keep the design very simple. While it’s a great idea to mix it up a little and use different coloured crystals, if you’re not careful they could overpower the look, rather than complement it.
Combine them with pearls and beads for a breath-taking finish
Swarovski flatback crystals can look beautiful on their own. However, if you want to create a truly exquisite wedding veil, you’ll want to consider adding Swarovski pearls or beads into the design. These will add more depth and luxury to the veil. One of the great benefits of creating your own veil is that you can pick up a cheap basic veil and save money by glitzing it up yourself.
Swarovski pearls will look especially beautiful on a veil. You can pick up hotfix pearls which you can apply in the same way as hotfix flatback crystals. You can find plenty of design inspiration by searching online. You’ll also find tutorials telling you how to make them if you need a little help.
