Unhappy help with sticking on crystals please!!!

I am not sure if I am doing it totally wrong or what! My crystals get 'foggy'. I don't have the hot fix machine, so that may be where I'm going wrong. Any one have any other suggestions? I'm using loctite non-toxic super glue. Maybe it's my big fingers? Do you use tweezers? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated!
Thanks ladies!
Laura

I use the tweezer... =) The L-shape like this:

Tweezer Anti-Magnetic 4 1/2\\\\\\\"

I got mine from HL but I'm sure you can get it anywhere i.e Michael's, WM etc etc etc...

I have a hotfix tool but I never seem to use it!! I have the hot fix jewels and have found that it takes a lot less time and me alot less stress of my little one's being around that HOT wand if I just use a lighter...I place the jewel where I want it , warm it with the lighter till it lifts a bit from the adhesive getting warm and press down. TAH DAH! BUT you need to be super careful at how close you get the flame to the ribbon. I find this soo much faster than waiting for the want to heat up. HTH! Hmmm...maybe I should just sell my wand. I only used it ONCE!!! hee hee hee.
