where did you got the gun? I went to my Joann and Michael's and they don't have them. I think if you searched lollipop flowers you might find your video.

I've made several singed flowers now with costume satin from wmart. I went and bought real satin cause I wanted new colors and ALL of it catches fire instead of singeing. What in the heck am I doing wrong?

it is likely more acetate/nylon so it burns instead of singeing taffeta does not work at all, you need a mid weight satin too heavy and it wont melt right and too thin and it just doesnt singe well

I got all my satin from wal mart. I just used a candle and you dont even have to get really close to the flame before the edges curl up!
