Default Projectile CZ's

How do you get the cz from the table to the bead. One landed on my quietly sleeping dog, and the other one is lost forever. I wanted to put them on the top of a little Christmas tree but decided it was ok without them. Thank you.

lol!

Try glueing (I use elmers) the cz flat side down on top of an old bent mandrel. Let it dry. When you apply the cz hold it on the heated section a second or two to make sure it is stuck. The glue just burns off and you can put it exactly where you want it to go.

If you're doing the glue/mandrel.... MAKE SURE you know where you're goign to put it, soften the glass up to goopy in that spot, and don't have any 2nd thoughts.
If you linger close to the flame or the hot glass, the glue will burn off anyhow, and the cz will drop off.

Still working on this myself.
