RIVETING WITH CRYSTAL RIVETS ~
Here is a video I made quite a while ago before the world of riveting went CRAZY! I have now transitioned from the rivets featured in the video to the crystal rivets I now carry in my shop. The technique is the same but you may want to use your setter to keep the cap portion rounded. But…if it’s on the back of your item and won’t be seen, no biggie!
* PLEASE NOTE — I mention in this video how important it is to make sure you create a hole large enough in your metal blanks in order for your rivet to make a proper connection. This is a biggie since you don’t want your pretty little creation falling apart! My EuroPower Punch is my best friend when I am creating holes in my metal for cap rivets. I always try to put a dab of E-6000 or something similar in the cap portion of my rivet for extra security. It just makes me feel better! LOL
Here is a great video demonstrating how to use CAP RIVETS by TierraCast. She demonstrates how to use the SUPER MINI cap rivets I carry but this technique will apply to all of the cap rivets I have available. Enjoy 😉
