Default Re: Ok to hot glue embellishments?

If it is a fabric embellishment I just use hot glue. Plastic rhinestone buttons, I use hot glue. If it is anything heavier like resins I use E600, generously, but not so much you see it oozing everywhere. I hold the resin in place for a few minutes, let set to dry for about 10-15 minutes, press firmly again for a few minutes and then leave overnight to finish drying. I have never had anyone say they fell off

Really? I was an idiot and didn't realize that the other tips would come in handy one day. I threw them away years ago! I probably should go buy another wood burner. What tip do you use? And how does it not burn a hole in the stone? I'm so confused!

I don't even bother switching tips. I use the same chisel tip that I cut with. It doesn't affect the stone at all.

I do hot glue for rhinestones & fabric appliques and E6000 for resins & bottle caps.
