Masquerade Party 

If you're planning to go to a masquerade party or looking to add a touch of elegance to your cosplay look, then the Preciosa Hotfix Crystals are the perfect choice for you. These crystals are available in various sizes, shapes, and colours, so you can mix and match them to create unique and beautiful designs.

The fantastic secret to hotfix crystals is that they to do not require a separate glue that will require time to dry and can become messy and hard to wash off. Preciosa hotfix crystals come with a heat reactive glue already on the back of the rhinestone and you simply need to apply heat and pressure to securely affix the crystal to your chosen material. The hotfix glue is also perfect for gripping to the fibres in fabric, making them the best choice for fabric embellishment.

Step 1

Let the Hotfix Applicator heat up

Turn on the Hotfix Applicator and rest it on the metal stand provided and allow it to heat up, this should take approximately two minutes.

Step 2

Place the rhinestones

Use the Magic Sorting Tray to hold the loose crystals while you’re working with them and use the Wax Picker Tool to pick up and place the hotfix flatback crystals onto the lace of the mask, glue side facing down in the pattern of your chosen design.

Step 3

Apply heat to melt the glue

Hold the Hotfix Applicator by the silicon safety grip handle and press the hot metal tip down onto the positioned crystal for approximately 10 seconds. Heat will conduct down from the tool, through the crystal and into the glue, which will melt and adhere to the fabric. Larger crystals will require a few extra seconds.

Step 4

Repeat until all crystals are secure

Work your way across your design, starting with the outlines and working your way in. Take care to not touch any freshly applied crystals that may still be hot, as they take a few moments to cool down once the tool has been removed from the crystal.
