What do you use to apply rhinestones? Rhinestone applicators of course! Beads N Crystals is the bead shop to visit for a complete range of rhinestone applicator tools in Australia for crystal diamantes and rhinestones.
Crystal gem setters and applicators are tools used to securely attach flatback rhinestones, crystals, and gems to a variety of surfaces such as clothing, accessories, and even phone cases. There are different types of gem setters and applicators available.
Handheld gem setters usually consist of a small, pointed metal tip that is used to pick up individual gems and then place them onto a surface. Our hot-fix gem applicators use heat to activate the adhesive on the back of the gems, allowing them to be quickly and securely attached to a surface. They work by heating up the tip of the applicator, which is then used to pick up and place the gems onto the surface. The heat from the tip activates the adhesive, allowing the gems to stick in place.
What do you use to apply rhinestones that don’t have heat-activated hot glue? E6000 Fabri-Fuse is our pick for stretchy and flexible fabrics. More rigid fabrics like felt and velour, hats and shoes, we recommend E6000 Jewellery & Bead adhesive. Beads N Crystals stocks the best glues for applying rhinestones to fabric and many other surfaces.
Using gem setters and applicators, can save time and provide a more precise application than using other methods, such as tweezers or fingers. If you wonder how to pick up rhinestones, the applicators we sock have a tip just sticky enough to pick up the crystal, while allowing it to release the crystal when it’s pressed onto the surface with glue, while leaving no marks or residue behind.
