Default What is it called?

This last summer I bought a pack of little plastic sticks with a beeswax tip that you could use if you accidentally lost the sticky off your rhinestone, pearl, etc.

They came in a pack of maybe 12, etc. I gave a lot away. You can even stick them in your wallet uncovered and they stay sticky for etc. A lady in one of the classes I was teaching had one and that's how I learned about them. I bought mine in a stamp store not close to me. What are they called? Duh Me!!

I want to know too! I thought some posted once that Cricut has a "tool" that may lend itself to this purpose.......picking up small objects like beads ect?

Probably not what you are looking for, but I bought a set of these at artbeads.com. On that site they are called jewel setters.

Sounds like a great tool.

Like ckidd, this is probably not what you're looking for, but I have a tool that does what you described. It's called a QuickStik. It's green and definitely does not come in an inexpensive pack. It was 7.50 for one; I also got it at a stamp store, AND it does do what you described.

On rereading, perhaps mine does something slightly different. Did your tool pick up tiny things w/no sticky on them or add sticky to them? The tool I mentioned is for picking up tiny things that may be hard for fingers to get ahold of.

The tool I'm referring to just has sticky on it so you can pick up small objects. Anyone know where to buy one?

I found info re: how to make your own - HTH:

Use something like a match stick or cotton bud (without the cotton tip), rub a piece of bees wax (about the size of thumb nail into a ball, the heat from your hand warms it enough to make it soft, stick it on the end of the small stick, roll it into a pointed tip. That tip will pick up a gem stone and hold onto it until you place it into its setting, the gem stone comes off the stick with a slight movement once the stone is in place and it leaves no marks. I have only ever used pure bees wax without the orange stuff, so I don't know if that orange stuff would mark or not, but could be wiped off later I would think.

This sounds like a good idea. Where do you get bees wax?

I only know it, modified, in candles and in very small amounts in fabric stores. I have some paraffin wax, but paraffin isn't sticky.

Connie, Those are like the ones I am talking about except they came about 10 or 12 to a pack and they weren't as expensive as these are each.

So many places sell beeswax it would be too much to list here - just google 'beeswax'. You might end up liking it to use in some of what you make. Lots of folks use beeswax in altered art, atcs, altered books.

Ranger Industries who makes products for the likes of Tim Holtz, Suze Weinberg, and Claudine Hellmuth also makes Melt Art Beeswax which comes in pellets (white or natural color) and is inexpensive. If you google Ranger Melt Art Beeswax or Ranger beeswax you'll find lots of sources for it. To name a few: Mister Art, folks on eBay, Blockhead stamps.....it's everywhere LOL......

HTH.

Mine picks up tiny things with no sticky on them so you can place them on glue, Glossy Accents, etc. They are sticky enough to pick up the object, but give way when you place them on the glue. It the nature of the beeswax to stick but not so much it won't let go when your tiny thing touches the glue, etc..........and I probably got 10 for the price of your one.

DuhMe!!! Here is a picture of one of the 3 I have left:

HTH.

I tried the Google thing with Bees Wax Pickups, Waxy Pickups, LOLOL almost anything I could think of and some like mentioned for jewelry above. What I liked about what I bought was how easy it was to carry with me and how little it cost when one wore out.

Don't mean to hijack this thread but would like to ask a question of Binx. Who makes the Quick Stick? I have tried to google it but don't come up with anything like the crafting tool. I asked at one of my LSSs, the owner knew what I was talking about but didn't carry it. She said that she remembers seeing it as a craft show but didn't know the brand/maker. I have looked at several Joanns & Michaels but no luck. TIA

Thank you, 3 Love Bugs. Now I can shop more intelligently. When I did the googled Quick Stick, I would get results for what sounded like an automotive tool or something completely unrelated to paper crafting.

It's called the Perfect Positioner by Westrim crafts. The come two in a pack, and pink and have a sticky whitish know at the end of each one. You press the tacky end of the Perfect Positioner on the top side of the jewel to pick it up. I got mine at a craft store... for $1.50 Cdn.
