Strictly Swarovski: Hotfix Mixes for Ballroom Dancing Outfits

If you simply gush and swoon at the outfits on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, you’re not alone. These hand-crafted outfits are glamour from head to foot. Every inch is pored over with intricate detail and thousands of crystals are used – it certainly creates some inspiration for making your own Strictly outfit at home. While you may not have the expert level of the costume designers on the show, you can glitter it up just as much. With our hotfix mixes you can easily apply glitz and glamour however you want. Swarovski crystals are renowned for their multi-faceted shine, high quality, and long-lasting beauty.

Hotfix mixes are a great purchase if you’re new to (or an old hand at) hand-crafting dance costumes and ballroom outfits, partly for the choice that you get. If you’re completely new to hotfix crystals, you will need a hotfix applicator. It’s not as complicated as it sounds, and this product is available on our website with super easy instructions included. Hotfix crystals should only be applied to soft, absorbent materials like cotton or polyester. It’s a good idea to use a scrap piece of material to practise on first – but it won’t take long to get the hang of it.

Choose the correct size applicator for the hotfix crystal you want to apply, pop it in the nozzle and wait a couple of minutes for it to heat up. Then add the crystal to the applicator. You will see the glue begin to melt and become soft. Keeping the applicator at a 90 degree angle and the material on a flat surface, gently but firmly apply the hotfix crystal. And that’s it! Play with some designs and patterns for your ballroom outfits.

You can sample a range of sizes with our size mix of Swarovski Flatback Crystals Hotfix. These come in a pack of 250 or 500 in round, multi-faceted Swarovski crystals in Crystal AB, an iridescent crystal colour that works against any material. From as small as 1.4mm to 4mm in size, these crystals make a subtle but brilliant adornment along the hem or edge of a costume. Line the bottom edge with the largest size crystals, create a row above with a smaller size, then another with a smaller size, and so on, creating a rippling effect as large or small as you want!

We also carry a Shapes Mix of Swarovski Flatback Hotfix Crystals, which come in navette, pure leaf, flame, drop, raindrop, starlet, rhombus, and fan shapes, ranging in sizes from 6mm to 10mm. Shapes mixes are great for cluster patterns on your outfits, for example as a detail on the shoulders. Tessellate some of these shapes to make for a beautiful pattern that catches the eye, and is easy and fun to make.
