Ever wondered how to heat gun? I wrote some tips and instructions for you below.
"It's no delay to stop to edge the tool"
Have you been a little intimidated about using a heat gun? Let me help you understand a little more about this useful tool and maybe you will want to add one of them to your craft supplies or break it out a little more often if you already own one.
What are they?
Heat guns are pretty much essential tools for papercrafters. They are slim tools that are built with the safety features of a hair dryer, having a safe plastic body to hang on to and a nozzle for directing the super hot air.
They remind me of the shape of an electric drill tool or a straight hair dryer.
Incidentally, you can buy a Heat Tool from me if you live in Australia by going to SusanSalutations. It is listed as being a heat tool on the site.
Basically, if you can use a hair dryer then you can use one of these craft tools. The temperature generated is higher than that of a hair dryer though so please don't try drying off the family dog with it after you have bathed him or accidentally directing it at someone's face or eyes.
What can they be used for?
Having a nice, hot, dry stream of air to focus on your papercraft projects can be extremely useful at times.
The most common way to use a heat gun is probably for heat embossing. This technique is one of my favourites, as I am sure you have discovered from browsing this site.
