Hot Fix Tools for Rhinestones

Breast Cancer Rhinestone RibbonUsing a Hot Fix tool or a Heat Press require that you purchase Hot Fix Rhinestones, Nailheads, pearls, etc... Which means the items come with glue on their underside. Read more about methods of applying rhinestones. Hot fix application of rhinestones on fabric is more permanent than gluing (this is how T shirts are made). The draw back for those who apply stones individually is that it is more time consuming and a bit tougher to do.

Applying rhinestones individually can be made with a wand type tool that has tips that fit the various rhinestones. See the article How to use a rhinestone hot-fix applicator.

For production purposes, transfers are made and a heat press is used to apply the transfer to the material. (some folks use their irons to accomplish the same) See the article: How to create Heat Transfers and How to Apply Heat Transfers Transfers. To create transfer you would need tacky paper (tape)

Check your circuit breaker box to make sure that you have at least 15 Amp circuits (the DK20 should have a 20Amp circuit breaker for safety)
