Default How do I glue very tiny rhinestones?

If I'm trying to hot glue the very small rhinestones, it's too difficult to get the hot glue on the back without lots of glue strings. I use jewelry pliers to hold it, but it just doesn't work. What are some good tricks to attach tiny stones? Do you use another kind of glue? Any help is appreciated!

I use hot fix rhinestones. Then I don't have to mess with glue

I got so frustrated trying to use hot glue so now for small rhinestones I use hot fix stones or E6000 and a toothpick. Much easier & neater

they have a couple of hot glue guns at HL that have precision tips if thats any help. Otherwise the hot fix stones are the way to go.

I use E6000 with either a toothpick or a very small brush. Got tired of burning my fingers with the hotglue.

I use Gemtac for my tiny rhinestones. It is made specifically for that and sort of looks like Elmer's glue. I put a dab of glue on a piece of paper and dip a safety pin into it and then apply to my applique or ribbon. Then I use tweezers to drop it into place and then press down gently. You have to make sure a thin ring of glue squishes out around the rhinestone to ensure that it will stay on. I let my things dry for a 1/2 hour or so before handling it again. Hth!
