*Helpful hints on the crystallization process
  • You don’t have to use a heat wand some people have used an iron or hair straighter, but I recommend a heat/hot wand b/c it’s easier to maneuver.
  • Crystals are more easy to manipulate w/ tweezers
  • Make sure you allow your heat/hot wand to preheat before using, you want it hot
  • 1st place a dab of glue on the crystal bottom (a toothpick works best) and place crystal where you want it adhered, then hold the heat/hot wand over the crystal for 8-10 seconds
  • Put a dab of glue on the back of the crystal and place it where it needs to go. Do this w/ all the crystals then use the heat wand and hold it over each crystal for 8-10 seconds and use tweezers or something to press the crystal down lightly to make sure it's securely fastened. Be careful the crystal will be HOT!

Do you need extra glue if you have hotfix crystals?

it helps make sure the crystals are securely held but you can do it w/o the glue
