"Can't hurt to try, but it WILL void any warranty your tip might have. Send it in to the manufacturer first and see if they will repair or replace the tip for you. It may cost less than the trip to buy and the cost of the solder. There are…"

"Good Bonnie.  Thanks for letting us know.  I don't need one now as I just sent Razor Tip 2 of the pens that had tips broken.  Always take that chance when you're teaching others how to woodburn.  "

Geri,Thanks for your info. I buy most of my gourds here in South Carolina but have gotten a few from Wurtz and Welborn that are very thick. but the main gourd work I've been doing is making jewelry from shards with a friend, and she's shown me how to do closed coiled weaving around rims, and I'm hooked on that right now. Of course I have to woodburn a design on the shards and gourds before anything since that is what I love most.

I hope you are doing well and I must tell you your work is just great. I love seeing what my GAE friends are doing, it is so inspiring.

awwwww, thank you Geri. I was my pleasure. If I can help in any way just let me know. If I can.........LOL I will !
I finally got a couple of pics up of the gourd I just finished, that I used alcohol ink dyes on.

thank you Geri for your compliment on that blue gourd....LOL I wasn't sure if I even liked it. The blues on that one were a mixture of memories ink dyes ( water based)
Hey, I will send you a link or two for those dyes I was telling you about. There are video tutorials and I've been having such fun with them. you can get many effects. Some feel they are not as fade resistent as the transtint, but I haven't heard any complaints and they are said to be non fading...soooo :)

Geri, you are getting better and better!!! I love the new gourds. Sure wish I could have a lesson with you with the watercolors and watercolor pencils. I bought some last week and have played with them some but it wasn't going well so I quit for now. Your work is great. Linda
