Default Re: Woodburner or fraycheck?

I started out using fray check. Didn't like the way it showed on some ribbon. Went to using a lighter. Liked it, but still couldn't get those perfectly straight edges. So I bought a woodburner and love it. Now the only time I use the lighter is if I just need to seal up a few things fast. And the only time I use fray check is if I'm working with cotton ribbon or trims. Since cotton will burn, not melt, if you use the woodburner on it. Oh and I've noticed that my first bows that I used fray check on are fraying now. Guess that stuff doesn't last forever.
