As for the second question, I have not had a problem with the melted mesh getting too rough. I do cut the mesh close to the flower so perhaps that plays a roll?
Well the heat gun my hubby has here, the end is about the size of a blow dryer, so it probably wont work. I wonder if heat guns have added pcs for them, Hmmm!
Heat guns get VERY hot, scary hot!!! YIKES!
Thx for helping!
