Default I-rock tool by imaginesce

Thinking of going to Roberts (similar to Michaels) and getting one.. Anyone here have one? do you like it? Does Michaels sell the Kandi one? Any help would be great.

I got one recently with a gift card I had gotten for my birthday. I only had a chance to play with it for a few minutes, but found you have to hold the on button down the whole time which is a bit annoying. (But safer I am sure!) It seemed to take much longer than I had thought to adhere the crystals.

They stayed put nicely tho!

I got one a few weeks ago and have found that it takes very little pressure to get the bling to stick. If you push too hard then the glue kind of spurts out

That's the only negative I've experienced with mine as well...but that is just part of the learning curve with any tool. Overall I like mine and it is so much easier than using embellishments and glue dots. I bought mine at Archivers and was able to use their 30% off coupon so it wasn't an expensive investment

i love it
but as said above there is a learning curve when it comes to the bling

the little flat type bling needs very little time and pressure

the gem type bling needs a little more time and pressure.

but once you get it to stick, it stays fine!

i even bought the TULIP brand gems, works fine but takes longer and a lil more pressure to get them to adhere.

oh, and the tip gets very very hot, i touched it to a plastic box just to see how hot it relly gets, it melted right through it, LOL, yeah, i am one of the let me seee if its true kinda gals........if it says dont touch, it makes me wanna ha ha ha.............


its a great lil tool, esp when you can buy with a coupon.
