Default woodburner to seal

I was trying the lighter. Kept burning my ends. But I am doing the same with the wood burner. I am guessing it just takes a steady hand and lots of practice. ???

I use a lighter on some specific parts of a bow, but I mostly use my wood burner. I have not really burnt the ends of my bows. Are you keeping the wood burner on the ribbon too long?? Usually a quick pass of the wood burner does the trick for me.

Even with the lighter, one or two quick passes does the trick, when I do burn the ribbon, I have held it was too long...

It takes a little practice, but make sure you are barely touching the ribbon to the wood burner. I find it easier to use the barrell of the wood burner and not the tip. One keep tap, and I'm done.

I love my wood burner. I use the barrel of it the most but to do very intricate work for like the ribbon sculptures and the spikes (v-cut) I use the tip. It works great!!

I use the barrel on my wood burner also. I take my ribbon ends and lightly touch them to the barrel. Keep practicing!

I use my lighter and love it, mostly because it is portable. I like to do some steps while I'm on the go (Dr, bus stop, carpool lines). ANyway, you just want the heat to seal the ribbon. It doesn't really need to touch the flame. I think it does take a little practice.
