I've looked at joann's online for a small iron to use for this sort of thing. (Sorry if this is going off topic.) What kind or brand do you use or recommend? Should I start a new thread in another place? I'm thinking it would be a great technique, especially with springy colored alcohol inks for Easter cards.

I just use my regular iron and protect it with a sheet of white paper. No steam!

I have an iron I bought at Good Will that is devoted to crafts, and I also have a mini iron (found in the needlework department) for melted crayon techniques.

If you use an old iron with steam holes in the footplate for working with wax, the wax can collect in the holes & cause the iron to malfunction or cause a fire. To prevent that happening, lay 2 sheets of foil down on a smooth flat surface, place the cold iron face down & wrap the foil around the footplate & partway up the sides. This will keep you & your iron safe. Just make sure that there are no wrinkles on the foil so it doesn't transfer to your artwork. HTH

I can't wait to try it, either. Incentive to get the back room cleaned up some so I can get at my stamping stuff, to get at my alcohol inks, and then see if I want to get some more! (Chances are I will!)
