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.
