Hot Fix Rhinestones Are The Perfect Embellishment Making your own projects and designing your own clothes can be a whole lot of fun. Using various materials and textures, you can let your imagination go wild. Small embellishments make your designs unique. If you enjoy customizing your clothing or any other items, consider using flat back or hot fix rhinestones to give your clothing an extra pop. When choosing to use these sorts of embellishments, there are a few key things to know. When applied correctly, they can make any design more interesting. There are some similarities in the appearance of these two kinds of rhinestones. Both kinds have a multi-faceted side with the sparkling gem. The other side of both of these kinds is generally a flat, grey surface. This is where the similarities between the two types end, however. These decorations have differences in both application and practicality. A special glue is necessary to apply flat back rhinestones. Wherever you intend to attach the rhinestone on the fabric, you will need to apply an appropriate amount of glue directly onto the fabric which is usually done with a syringe. Typically, you need to use tweezers to pick up the embellishments, since they are too small to handle with your fingers. Gently place the decoration on top of the glue. The hot fix variety will attach in a different way. While they do have a flat, gray backside, if you look closely, you will see there is dried glue on that surface. That is because you'll use heat to melt the glue and affix the piece onto your design. To help you apply this kind of rhinestone to your fabric, there is actually a setter tool which you can use. Once placed on your design, hot fix rhinestones are permanent. Make sure you know exactly where you are planning to place them, because they won't come off your material once you put them there. Flat backs, however, can come loose. Using the same method as the initial application, you'll be able to reapply flat backs. So if you are looking for a design that needs sturdy, permanent decor, the hot fix gems are the best option. Another difference between the two is that the more permanent kind is just suggested for fabric. The setter may become so hot that it could potentially burn through those materials which is the reason the hot fix variety shouldn't be used on other items. Therefore, if you're planning to a design that involves leather, paper or plastic, you should probably choose the flat back rhinestones. If you are using glue on a flat back rhinestone for a surface that is hard and smooth - like a cellular phone - you might consider taking extra measures to make sure the gem will stick. These surfaces don’t have much for the glue to grab on to, so you'll have to create that bond. Putting a drop of glue on the surface and allowing it to dry completely is one fantastic way to do this. Once it is dry, you can affix the rhinestones onto the dried glue. If you would like to have some fun and create something that is unique, do-it-yourself project are great. Flat back and hot fix rhinestones are a good way to customize your projects. Knowing the difference between the two will allow you to decide which to use for your project.
