I have never heard of the clear nail polish before I might have to give it a try. I use a wood burner for almost everthing even cutting. I just to a piece of glass out of a old picture frame to cut on

I started with Fry Check but like the others said it leaves a wet stain...now I use a lighter, but it sounds like I need to check out the wood burner!!

I really want to get a woodburner, but with an active almost-two-year-old who loves to help Mommy with her bows (i.e. get into everything), I am afraid to have one around her!

I love my woodburner for straight/angle cuts but I do mostly 'V' cuts so I still use my lighter most of the time.

Wood burners now, but I use to do the lighter. I always catch a piece on fire when I do it that way...

Thanks for the information on the wood burners.. I have been using a lighter and sometimes my luck isn't soo swell. (I burn the ribbon) I think I might have to invest in a wood burner!! Brittany

Is there one burner brand that is preferred over another?
