Description & Information

Have you ever fiddled around with tiny gemstones, trying to get them to stick to your layouts or cards? Introducing the i-Rock Tool from Imaginisce. WIth this tool you can permanently affix rhinestones, pearls, jewels or mirrors to all sorts of materials. This cordless heat-setting applicator sets all sorts of embellishments with no messy glue needed. Try it on paper, fabric or even furniture!

How to use the i-Rock Tool:

  1. Unpack the i-Rock tool and keep the packaging. On the back it tells you, step by step and clearly, how to use the product and this can be really helpful the first few times you use it.
  2. Before you start, slip the end of the tool off and add three AA batteries – it is clearly marked on the outside of the tool as to which way your batteries need to be inserted. Then make sure the heating element is screwed in tightly.
  3. Add your gems to your project and when you are happy with their placement grab your i-rock tool.
  4. Move the safety switch to the "ON" button (again this is very clearly marked on the tool) and press the button down. Hold this button for 15 seconds until you hear a slight pop. This means the tool is ready to use. Don't touch the metal at this stage – it will be extremely hot! Keeping your finger on the button, lightly put the metal tip on top of one of your gems.
  5. The heat is transferred from the metal element in the tool through your gem to the glue underneath. The glue melts and you feel the gem slip or give slightly, that means you're done! You don't need to apply any pressure at all; the tool does all the work for you.
  6. When you release the button and turn the switch to the off position, it begins to cool.


Tips:

  • Each gem seems to take a different amount of time to heat up so you have to practice a little depending on what gems you are using. We at Scrapbook.com have been impressed with how the gems stay stuck to our projects. We have made quite a few things and the gems haven't lost their stickiness at all.
  • Don't worry when you first use your tool; it may smell of burning for a little while but it soon disappears. It's just because your tool is new and it's breaking itself in!
  • Using this tool can be addictive! Make sure you have plenty of gems available for use before you start.
  • Don't be fooled into wanting to apply too much pressure to keep the gem in place. There really is no need and if you are not careful you will just end up melting the gem onto the i-rock. That's not a big deal though; you can clean it easily.
  • Also by not applying too much pressure you can keep your gem in place and it doesn't get stuck in the wrong location.
  • Not recommended for use directly on phones
  • Create your own swirly gem stickers for pages and cards without the expense of the premade ones.

The i-Rock really does rock and is available for an extremely reasonable and affordable price.

    Love the I-rock!

    I was a little worried about picking up one of these tools after reading some reviews. So far so good! I love it! It's very easy to use, and heats up REALLY quickly! It does seem a little awkward at first, but you get the hang of it. You have to hold the button down while you're using it. You can use the Imaginisce brand gemstones, or it seems like any other "hot fix" embellishment. I found Darice brand packages at Pat Catan's that are working great with my I-rock! If you have trouble finding gemstones, check where your craft stores carry t-shirt making supplies. Just make sure you are buying "hot fix" stones; the glue is already on the back and just needs heat to make them stick. I am so excited to use this on my cards and layouts!

    The I-Rock ROCKS!!

    I just received my I-Rock yesterday. I have been wanting one of these for awhile!! Let me say.. it is an awesome little tool!!! You will LOVE having this in your arsenal! It is SO easy to use. It set the gems and glam rocks in a matter of seconds. You don't need to leave it on too long. You don't need to apply pressure. I like the idea of having to hold the button down for it to work. It shuts off when you release it, and gets rid of the risk of burning something. I am SO glad to have this great little tool!! Watch out it is addicting!!

    It really rocks!

    If I could give this ten stars, I would! I thought I had broke it the first week, but used it so much, the batteries just died on me! I have blinged out so many l/o and cards, if it stays still too long, it just might get covered in jems. I have ordered more and different type of crystals and what-nots to use with this. Love, love, love it! And the fact that's it's pink is just another plus for me!

    Rock it

    This little dude is great! So much nicer than placing your jewels then having to pick them up put too much glue, put the glue back down and having your glue squish out. This makes it so all you have to do is place and go. Love it!
