Material for work Gift Crystals:

The next step is to paint boxes. For working with children is ideal transparent glue for wood, because it is odorless. For washing of the arms and the packaging is enough warm water and soap.
This adhesive is a liquid and it is white, but when it dries it becomes translucent and shiny. Drying is very short, and the box will no longer be sticky to the touch.
Painting of the side that will be decorated left for next step.
