Using hotfix crystals with paints
  • Morning :)

    I want to use some hotfix crystals with some of my painted designs but so far, don't seem to be having much luck securing the crystals properly and they loosen once the garment is washed.

    My hotfix wand is new to me so it might be that my fixing technique needs some work ;) but I have been wondering if the paint is not a good backgound to fix to.

    Does anyone successfully use hotfix crytals with paint and if so, do you stick them to the paint or paint your design and leave spaces for the crystals to attach directly to the fabric?

    thanks,
    Sue
