How to apply hotfix rhinestones

Hotfix rhinestones: Need heat to melt the glue on the back of the crystals, so in the case of a t-shirt which is laid out flat, they can all be placed into position with a jewel setter and then melt the glue by using an iron  something similar over the crystals and press the iron on the crystals for approximately 12-15 seconds, test the crystals to see if the glue has melted, if not keep repeating the process.

The alternative is to use a hotfix applicator wand which looks much like a soldering iron that has interchangeable tips to accommodate the varying rhinestone shapes and sizes. To use this method again you need to lay out the rhinestones faceted side up, put the correct size tip on the applicator and then turn on.

The hotfix gun will take a minute or two to warm up then the rhinestones can be picked up with the tip and simply pressed onto the desired surface, repeating the process until the design is complete.
