Metal Hot-Fix Rhinestud Application

Instructions by Michelle Wood, Jewelry-Making Expert, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®
*Note: When applying to treated leather, you may need to rough up/expose the leather for glue to adhere securely.
Pre-heat hot-fix applicator tool for about 2 minutes with desired tip attached. Place hot-fix rhinestuds in desired pattern glue side down.
Holding hot-fix applicator straight up, place applicator tip on top of rhinestud for a count of 10 or until glue begins to melt. Larger rhinestuds may require longer heating time.

Allow rhinestud components to cool completely and check rhinestud for adherence. Repeat if necessary.
