    Can't say I found much difference in use, before heat guns, I held stuff over toaster, worked ok, just had to watch not to overheat

    I had a pink one, maybe dovecraft? It only lasted a couple of months and then another cheap one which burned out quickly, so I bought a Ranger one. Looks battered and well used, but it's still going strong after 6 years so I thought it was worth the extra money

    I've still got my original hairdryer style - must be about 12 years old now.

    I used to use the cooker top. The electric rings are solid, so worked quite well, though one did have to be careful. My biggest problem was that I didn't understand the difference between inks, so was trying to emboss using water based ink pads as well as the proper kind. It was long before the days of selly telly, let alone C & C or Dawn Bibby.

    My friend who introduced me to rubber stamping and embossing wasn't much help, though she did give me my first rubber stamp, a Welsh dragon on a clear mount for my birthday. I think I spent half the afternoon stamping everything I could lay my hands on, well except the books of course as that would have been frowned on! What she didn't give me was an ink pad, so I had to invest in a some the following day from the stationers. I bought a black, red, and blue one. Didn't realise there were specialist craft pads, I just bought mine from Jowett & Sowery in Leeds. Not that I would have known at the time where to buy them from anyway.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.
