It's pretty basic - just the hotfix tool, three rhinestone tips and three stud tips, and a cheap metal stand - but it gets the job done well. It took us 30 seconds to set it up and start adhering rhinestones to stuff. In less than an hour, we blinged out a dress, a t-shirt and two pairs of sneakers. After showing my 9-year-old niece how to use is and reinforcing never to touch the copper tip, I let her have a go. She successfully "crystallized" a handful of hairbows in less than 20 minutes with little help from me. She was thrilled with the results and declared me the best aunt ever - score!
I loved it so much, I promptly ordered a second one for myself. The best part? Two of these + the hotfix crystals I ordered still cost less than one BeDazzler.
I've ordered the Swarovski hotfix crystals and the Thread Art-brand crystals. The Swarovski crystals are notably prettier and have more sparkle, but the Thread Art ones are nice and a half the price for a helluva lot more bling. I haven't tried the Darice brand rhinestones, but the tool works equally well with the other two brands. I have noticed that when using the Thread Art crystals, I have to use tweezers to release the stone every 4-5th time. This is pretty easy to do; I watched a YouTube video to learn the technique. This seems more like a flaw on the part of the crystal than the hotfix tool, though.
I've never used a hotfix applicator tool before and I was able to bling out 1/3 of my wardrobe within minutes of opening the package. If I - and my 9-year-old niece - can do this, just about anyone can!
I start w a wooden cutting board & put it inside the shirt. Line it up so the portion you want to apply crystals too is centered. I then use a sewing pen (white) & ruler to find center & draw out my design (usually a team name or logo). Once I have it spaced, I use tweezers to start placing the crystals on my design. I like to put 10 or 20 in place before I start using heat.
Once I like how they look, I start applying heat. I don't use the tip that picks them up, I just find I get better results from the big flat one. Hold it on top of the crystal for 15-20 seconds & it will heat the crystal enough to melt the glue. Then do the next one...
When you are all done, I recommend flipping it inside out & hitting the back with an iron for a quick 5 seconds. Let cool, do it again to really set the glue.
My shirts have lasted over a year on delicate wash. I have had very few ever fall off.
I hope this helps!
First time using it, I waited the recommended time to let the tip heat up and tried it with a rhinestone on a painted wood bench that I made for a doll. It worked great and the rhinestone seems to be very well adhered to the surface! You do have to hold the applicator very still while "setting" the rhinestone onto the intended surface as it can slide and you can see where the backing has slid. Also make sure that the rhinestone is exactly where you want it when you remove the applicator as the rhinestone is permanently set into place seconds after lifting the applicator off of the rhinestone.
Overall, it really makes setting rhinestones so much easier and less messy than messing around with super glue. I love it and really recommend it!
I didn't actually know how these worked when I purchased this, but it was simple to use and heated up quickly. I use mine on a silicone pad which I recommend to protect your furniture from the heat and any potential glue.
I don't recommend using cheap stones. Not because of the machine, but because they don't seem to be sized consistently.
Update, for cotton jersey, it only takes 10 seconds for a firm and durable hold. Hope this helps.
