We have been designing and embellishing costumes for years and when it comes to rhinestoning, I can't tell you how many times we've thought "there has got to be a better/faster/easier way to do this!"
It has always been our objective to create beautiful and dazzling designs and now we have developed a set of tools to make rhinestoning: easier, faster, cleaner and extraordinary. Now, you can too!
We are proud to present our first line of rhinestones stencils and downloadable templates.
Our fontainefontaine stencils can be used with a range of glues, however, we recommend glues that are tacky and fast drying. Liquid or runny glues are messy to work with.
Our stencils are heat resistant and can be used with a heat fix tool or iron. Please do not expose the stencil to the heat fix tool for more than 5 seconds. When using an iron, place a sheet of fabric over the top to protect the stencil. Do not expose the stencil to heat for long periods of time. Do not iron directly on to the stencil - it will melt!
T-shirt press / heat press: we use our press at a maximum of 155 degrees celsius for no longer than 55 seconds. We also protect the stencil with a sheet of baking paper, fabric or teflon paper. Higher temperatures and/or prolonged exposure to heat may result in melting the stencil.
