Note: Items used below, but not listed in supplies, are included in the Creative Versa-Tool. There are 9 Points that are appropriate for creating Tangles. Practice on scrap wood to see what each Point can do.

  1. Before using the Creative Versa-Tool, read directions and follow all safety precautions. Attach Flow Point to tool. Tighten with pliers. Use tape to secure Stand to hard surface. Place Tool on stand. Plug into electric outlet, turn switch “on”, and let heat for 4-5 minutes. It’s always best to practice on a piece of wood before beginning any project.

  2. To prepare wood for woodburning, use sandpaper to lightly sand wood surface. Remove dust with a paper towel.

  3. Following the book instructions, use a pencil to place a dot in each corner of the Basswood Canvas. Make pencils lines to connect the dots and create a “string” within the dots as a guide line.

  4. Use the Flow Point to begin woodburning the sections formed by the “string”.

  5. Change Points to create various tangles from the Books. To change Points, use pliers to remove and attach each Point. Tighten with pliers and let the Points heat before using.

  6. To hot stamp using the Circle, Star or Square Stamping Points, hold the Tool perpendicular to the wood surface and press down and lift. Practice on a scrap of wood.

  7. When woodburning is complete, turn the switch “off” and unplug Tool.    

Many tangles can be created with the Creative Versa-Tool™. All Walnut Hollow Points that are available separately, or in other sets, are interchangeable on all of the Hot Tools.
