A new toy - Darice Crafting Tool


I read about this on Myrna Wacknov's blog.  It's a crafter's soldering iron with several kinds of tips.  As soon as I got one, I started melting everything in my studio.

I thought I was going to use it to make stencils, but have not had the best luck with that so far.





I love what it does to foam plates - this was a black foam plate that I burned a random pattern into.  You can get very intricate designs.



This is a piece of deli paper that I folded in half to make a Rorscach-type design.



I know I'm going to figure out a use for these designs sooner or later.

Please be careful about burning foam as the fumes are toxic!! Can't wait to see what else you do with it.
