After baking your clay piece, place it face down on a table. Score or scratch the flat pad of your Stainless Steel Ear Backs to give extra tooth for the adhesive. Apply a generous layer of E6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive and sit the back into position. Lightly press into position, but don't use excessive force. There is no need to apply a weight. Leave it for at least 24 hours to be touch dry. Adhesive will reach maximum strength after 48-72 hours. Apply matching Stainless Steel Stud Backs to complete your earrings. TIP: Use the largest flat pad earring piece that fits onto your piece (we have several sizes available). The larger the surface area, the stronger the bond will be.
