Default Re: fabric and organza "singed" flowers?

Has anyone ever tried singeing with anything other than a flame? I was wondering if a woodburning tool would get hot enough. It just seems like something like that would give you better control - especially with things like tulle and organza, which will shrivle into nothing in a heartbeat when exposed to flame - trust me, I know!

Traci, your flowers turned out beautifully! Wow! Can I ask what shape you cut your fabric in? Were they ovals? I really love the overall shape you achieved! Beautiful.
