Nylon Sparkle Organza has a glitter-like thread running though the fabric. Nylon Sparkle Organza fabric is dyeble. It is a colored metallic thread, the same as the fabric color, not a silver toned glitter thread. Poly Organza is a sheer fabric but is not prone to raveling as other sheer fabrics. It is a little heavier and stiffer than chiffon and is easier to work with. It is easy to hem and ruffle and keeps it's shape better than chiffon. It is widely used to make pageant gowns and skirts, dance and skate costumes and bridal veils. Below is a photo of a dress made with a Poly Sparkle Organza skirt, ruffled, edged and trimmed with tiny rhinestones. One of the ruffles is made of a pleated Poly Organza.

Choosing the right adhesive for applying flatback crystals depends greatly on the surface you will be applying the stone to. For cotton and synthetic fabrics, E6000 adhesive is also a very popular choice for adhering to fabrics and hard surfaces. If you plan on applying flatback crystals to fabric only, consider the Swarovski 2038 and 2078 HotFix Crystals, which come pre-manufactured with a small amount of dried adhesive on the back. Adhesives on Hot Fix crystals are activated with a Hot Fix application tool or heat press. Hotfix stones make a great choice for making crystal transfers and appliques. If you are applying the 2088 to a metal, glass, or other hard plastic surface, a two-part epoxy is a great solution. Two-Part rhinestone epoxy offers durability and strong bonds to nonporous surfaces because of the chemical reaction that takes place during the hardening process.
