Will hotfix (hot fix) crystals stick alright to a Nintendo DS using a Kandi Kane?

Just wondering if I can use hotfix crystals with a Kandi Kane applicator to stick crystals to a plastic Nintendo DS Lite?? I have differing opinions – some say the glue won’t hold and i would need ot use an extra kind of glue, but some say it should be fine. Any advice? I’ve seen the crystal-encrusted DS lites for sale on websites and want to have a go myself so any tips would be appreciated! Many thanks.

The hot fix crystals only stick to fabric well. The heat melts the glue that sinks into the fabric to adhere. For something slick, like a phone or your Nintendo DS, the glue will melt and stick only temporarily. It’s not going to hold onto anything that will be taking some abuse. Use an adhesive like E6000 that is made to hold strong on non-porous surfaces. Have fun!!

what’s the difference between hot fix and none hot fix for rhinestones?

what’s the difference between hot fix and none hot fix for rhinestones?

Hot fix have the adhesive already on the back. You use a hot fix gun to put it on. They (the gun) are between $15 and $25 bucks.

Non-hot fix are just flat back rhinestones where you have to apply a specific glue to each individual stone and apply.

The smaller the gauge (the mm) the harder this is to do by hand.

also, don’t use crazy glue, unless you have mad skills. If it gets on the crystal, it’s ruined!

Do hotfix crystal rhinestones stick to 600 deniur polyester fabric?

I want to buy polyester tote bags and rhinestone them with hotfix crystals, but I’ve only worked with cotton tote bags so far, and I know that hotfix glues to them fine.
I hear that hotfix glues to fabric with high melting points and that polyester is a high melting point fabric.
Can anyone verify or agree with that, or does anyone know personally and FOR SURE?

Anything would be great.
Thank you so much in advance!!

I put the hotfix on polyester fabric that looks like velvet. The fabric is black and the hotfix are the crystal (multicolor like a rainbow) and they look beautiful. I made two of them and put them in frames with non glare glass. The sewing store where I bought the embroidery machine has one displayed as a selling point for the machine I have. You have to be really careful, because the fabric melts quickly and it was a bit nerve wracking. Try only one on a piece of the fabric and see how the fabric holds up. You just have to be really careful that your hotfix tool doesn’t touch the fabric…I put the crystal quickly on the fabric and took my finger to tap, tap it on..I don’t want to tell you to try this because you might burn your finger, I didn’t, but I tapped very quickly. I also put crystal on some pretty black flip flop shoes that I have and it made them look dressy!

Have fun! They do add beauty to your sewing projects.

I am glad you said anything would be great, cuz, I don’t want you to buy a large amount of fabric and be disappointed1 (Chuckle…I know what it is like to have a ruined project ) I might have a picture of my project on my desktop that I could send to you…but not on the laptop I am using. I just have to warn you to do it very quickly and pull the tool away as quickly as you can. I did have an itsy bitsy spot that was melty and covered it with another rhinestone.
