Default tricks to putting glue on rhinestones...

Any tricks out there to share on gluing rhinestones or crystals to flowers? I have been using the glue gun but it is so messy and seeps out under the stone. I tried E6000 but the glue exploded everywhere!!! Would love any advice you girls have to share. Thanks!

Thanks Krysia! Ok, so the wand applicator is what I need? Does that glue them on?

They are crystal with glue on the back and when you put them on with the hot crystal applicator it makes it stick.

It'll glue them on if they're hotfix crystals (like Minnie said, with the glue already on the back). Sooooo much easier! I purchased swarovski hotfix crystals and the Kandi Kane professional touch tool from hotfixqueen.com; however, all you need to do is look for/google "hot fix," and you should be good to go. If you want to use up the ones you have (I still have some non hot fix ones), use Gem Tac - it's great for permanently adhering them, without there being any "clouding issues" that some glues cause on the crystal itself.

Definitely, though, from now on - hot fix
