Heat It Up Reader Challenge

An iron is a powerful tool. While we often use an iron to smooth things out, have you ever considered using the heat to press things wrinkly? What about to create pleats with crisp folds? Have you ever tried manipulating fibers with other heat sources—such as a craft heat gun? We use heat to activate fusibles, manipulate ephemera, and at times, to dry fabric.

Our daring readers dabbled with soldering irons, fired up their heat guns, and even used candle flame to manipulate materials for amazing artwork. We are pleased and proud to announce this group of finalists.

*Please check this list carefully for your name.*
