Hot-Fix Applicators, How-To

8C02

STEP 1
Place a hot-fix crystal in position on your project (glue side facing down).
STEP 2
Slide applicator to the ''ON'' position. Press red button and hold down to activate the heating element. Wait approximately 30 seconds.Caution: Do not touch any metal parts. The applicator will get very hot.

STEP 3
Holding the applicator vertically, continue to hold the red button down and lightly touch the top of the crystal. You do not need to use any pressure--just a gentle touch for about three seconds. The heat will radiate through the crystal and activate the glue on the hot-fix crystal. The embellishment will now be securely attached.
STEP 4
Remove the applicator. Release the red button to allow applicator to cool. When you have completed your project, slide the black switch to the ''OFF'' position. This is a safety feature to prevent the applicator from heating even if the red button is held down.

Note: To avoid burning your project, be especially careful when adhering crystals smaller than the head of the applicator.

Not recommended for leather, water resistant material or non-porous surfaces.

Before beginning any project, always test the hot-fix crystal in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are getting the best adhesion possible.

Tip: Hand-wash fabrics with embellishments.
