Default Re: Korker Ends When Using a Woodburning Tool...

Also, I usually try and cut all the dark colors at the same time, and light ones, etc. I think it happens more if you go from cutting a dark piece to a light piece.

When you say you file the gunk off the tip... Do you mean off the tip of the woodburning tool? What do you do if the ribbon has already been burned on the ends? I've been trimming the edges of the korker curls that have brown on them and then using a lighter to reseal, but this takes FOREVER!
