We are not all seasoned professionals when it comes to rhinestoning a garment, we often land up learning from our trials and errors as well as wasting so much precious time. So we have put together from our experience a few of the mistakes first time stoners often make.
Burning your material?
A common mistake people make when rhinestoning with an applicator is holding the applicator onto the rhinestone for to long of a period of time thus burning the stone and material.
Stones peeling off or dulling? 😐
Another mistake is to hold the applicator for to short of a period of time not giving the hotfix enough time to melt onto your material. Adding too much glue might keep the stone in place but it does dull the stone quite a bit and can result in the rhinestone peeling off.
Why are my rhinestones falling off? 😓
To little glue placed onto your material will leave you replacing rhinestones everytime you hit the dance floor.
Dirty tools 👎🏼
Not having clean equipment can also affect the overall look of your garment and it can definitely slow you down. Always make sure that your rhinestone applicator tips are clean. The hotfix glue left behind can leave a residue on your rhinestones. Also getting glue on your rhinestone prestik/beeswax applicator when using the glue method will have you cleaning your rhinestones every few minutes.
