ss5 (1.8mm) Swarovski Hotfix Flatback Crystals
SS5 (1.8mm) flatback crystals also known as rhinestones or iron on crystals are an ideal hotfix crystals for applying to greeting cards or creating your own small transfer design or if you already have an image on your t-shirt but you would like to add a delicate sparkle, these are ideal to aid your creativity!
These hotfix crystals also know as iron on crystals are applied using heat. If you are using the Kandi Kane Hotfix Applicator to apply these SS5 crystals we recommend that you use small flat tip. You will need to place the crystal on your garment (shiney side facing up) then place the hot flat tip on the top of the crystal, the heat from the tip will melt the glue in approximately 5 seconds.
The advantage of using hotfix crystals is that using the Kandi Kane applicator wand makes applying the crystals very easy and with crystals as small as the ss5\'s a lot neater and less fiddley!
These crystals are excellent for adding a subtle sparkle to wedding veils and thus are much more effective than using a bottled glue as it can seap through materials, the hotfix fuses on to the netting or lace much more neatly and sparingly.
