    Hi everyone!
     
    So I've recently come across pictures on Instagram about Decorating Pacis, and apperently there are people that do it as a job and sell it on Etsy and stuff. 
     
    I came across this picture (down below) and I wanted to recreate it but I'm not sure what materials to use? I've tried to go to Michael's and find the beads to decorate it with but they don't have them. Is there a good website that I can order them off of? Also, where can I find characters to go in the middle?
     
    Thanks for your help!

    They’re flatback pearls in the first pic. And flatback rhinestones in the 2nd.
    You can sometimes find them in dollar stores or craft stores with adhesive already attached. However that is too weak, so you’re better off peeling the adhesive off of them and then using superglue.

    Ebay, wish and ali-express have these types of accessories.
    There are also different types of superglue, so check instructions.
    Some require putting the glue on both surfaces, and some you only need to put it on one surface.

    I search “flatback resin cabochon cute” and similar. In my opinion it’s cheaper to decorate your own pacies ^^

    Good luck, I hope that helps.

    Few more tips! Use a toothpick with a tiny amount of glue on it to pick up the tiny pieces, or craft tweezers.
    If you’re trying to cover an entire surface, start at the middle and work your way out. You’re less likely to have gaps.

    Thanks for the info! I already ordered flatback pearls and rhinestones but I'm looking for the miniatures that you suggested to be the main part of the paci. I'm looking for specifically the Eeyore one as seen in the picture in my original post. I've been looking on AliExpress and Etsy but I haven't found anything that's even remotely close. Do you have any ideas on where else I can look?

     

    Also, do you have pictures of the pacis that you've decorated? I would love to see them.

     

    Again, thanks for all your help!

    I don't have a ton of experience but as for glue use something flexible! I tried gorilla glue but since the paci plate is curved and the pearls flat back the glue tended to create a weak hold. This time I am using E6000 and I think it will work much better. The less glue the better because it can show around the edges. I get most of my supply stuff on amazon.A tiny pair of tweezers will be useful too. Good luck!

    Here you go^^
    https://www.etsy.com...resin-flat-back

    They have a bunch of different ones.

    I can try to find mine to take pics of for you laters. :heart:

    Contrary to what people are saying- Superglue works fine. I’ve had my custom pacies for over a year and they’ve been through a lot and lasted perfectly fine.
    And buying flatbacks from a craft store whilst more pricy per 100pcs, you have the supplies asap and unless you’re going into business you don’t need all that many. It still turned out less expensive for me than if I were to buy a custom paci online.

    I used to run a paci store - don't get flatback pearls from Michaels or anywhere, they'll cost you more that way. Get them from sites like aliexpress. They'll take a few weeks to arrive. Also, don't use superglue - E6000 or a plastic glue is what you should use, make sure it's non toxic. The characters in the middle are called resin planars, embellishments or cobachons. I get them from eBay and Etsy. Plain adult pacifiers can be bought from aliexpress for less than £3 including shipping

    The Tsum Tsum Eeyore in the picture you uploaded looks like it came from a pin or a keyring. Maybe look for those?

    Thanks for finding them for me! For whatever reason, I could not find them and they weren't coming up in my search results. Daddy and I picked up e6000 from Walmart, and it came with precision tips that I thought would be useful for using it with the very small rhinestones and pearls.

    Maybe a bit late, but to save anyone time in the future if they’re looking I’ll try to add some helpful info not mentioned above.

    The Stitch plastic center piece is called “planar resin” as someone mentioned. It’s really similar to plastic cupcake toppers/decorations and it’s a thin plastic that’s been printed on and cut out.

    The blue star is called a cabochon, looks like epoxy/uv resin. You can buy these premade or make your own. Another option is to use decorative buttons; I use a wire cutter to cut the little back loop part normally used to attach it to a garment so it’ll lie flat.

    Rhinestones:
    Good rhinestone sizes to use for pacis are 3-4mm or SS12, SS14, SS16.
    AB stands for aurora borealis and refers to the multicolor/iridescent affect. (Seen in stitch paci)
    Resin and glass rhinestones are typically inexpensive, but lower quality, not as shiny.
    Austrian crystals and Swarovski are considered the highest quality and are pricey if you don’t buy them wholesale.
    Basically you get what you pay for; Swarovski crystals last years and tons of hard falls to concrete and still look like new lol.

    Pearls:
    I don’t see a difference in buying cheap or expensive flat-back pearls. The only thing to note is the finish or shiny topcoat may rub off or fade over time. I like to seal it with a couple coats of clear nail polish or no wipe gel polish; be careful not to get it on rhinestones.

    Glues:
    Industry standard for rhinestones and deco is E6000, however because a pacifier is in close contact to your mouth, FDA-approved resins and glues are the safest.
    A less toxic alternative to E6000 that I like is GemTac.
    Krazy Glue and some Rhino glues are food safe, but if you get it on the gems, it will turn cloudy and dull.
    Some glues like E6000 will literally melt any paints/inks and sometimes cheap rhinestones. (Learned this the hard way)

    For precision gluing, you can put E6000 or GemTac in a syringe with a needle. Most popular is the pink tip (18 gauge). I’ve only seen Hobby Lobby and wholesale stores sell these.

    Cleaning:
    Avoid getting the decorated part wet or submerging in water. If you do make sure to dry it really well because it can corrode or even mold. To clean the gems it’s best to use rubbing alcohol and a cotton swap. Swarovski recommends cutting the stick part of the cotton swab to get into the nooks and crannies if it gets dusty or dirty between the small spots.

    source: blinging all the things since like 11 years ago lmao
    Hope this helps someone!
