I am making some Christmas gifts with rhinestones and I am torn on which method to use.

Any time I've ever tried to E6000 a flatback rhinestone, it caused a chemical reaction with the foil backing that made it look all warped. I use gem-tac with flatbacks. It works well. The rhinestone guy says it works as well as hotfix (therefore hotfix must be the "gold standard")
