Default Hot Fix Crystals advice

Good morning,

I'm trying to embellish a figure skating costume made of mesh with Swarovski Hot Fix crystals. I'm finding the wand so hot, it has burned several holes in the fabric. If I don't hold the wand for the required 10-12 seconds, they fall off. Any advice? Thanks, Lesley
