Default how to curl antennae?

someone mentioned in an earlier post about using a wood burner to curl antennae... Until now I've always used fray check and keep them straight... Does anoyone have a good method (with steps... I'm new to this!) to curl antennae?
TIA!

The Ribbon Retreat has free instructions...

This is where I learned. But, now I usually use my wood burner as you mentioned. Both ways work really well. It'll just take some practice! HTH

I do my antennae like on the TRR but have found that if you use 1/8 ribbon instead of 3/8 you just have to cut the ribbon down the middle the length that you want, then I don't have the "middle" piece adding to the ever growing pile scraps around me. Anyway, did that make sense???

oops, just reread and saw that the 1/8 ribbon idea was already posted, sorry. I just got so excited that I actually had something to contribute.
