Re: simulate fluxus work?



In some crafter's lingo this tool is called a Bunny Burner, named after the
woman who developed it.  It is much like a wood burning tool  and indeed,
does get very hot.  I use this flat disc tool to transfer photocopy images
to carving material that I use to create my own "rubber" stamps.  This
method is much less aggravating than acetone transfer and with a little
practice, works consistently and isn't messy or toxic.
