Hi all. My old dependable Marvy heat gun died a while back. I got a Heat It tool by Ranger (from Amazon), but it doesn't seem to get hot enough to melt embossing powder, though it's fine for heat setting ink and drying sprayed cardstock.
I've seen Recollections & Martha Stewart at Michael's, Darice at AC Moore, and Milwaukee/Hero Arts online.
Which of these is the best and will do the job? Do you have any other recommendations?
I too have the Ranger Heat-it that Tim Holtz uses all the time.I used to have the blue Heat-it-up tool, but my issue with that was it was very noisy. Seeing the ranger one in use at a Craft fair, I got that because it was so quiet. I use mine for drying/heat embossing powder/ melt UTEE/shrink plastic with no problems, so maybe you have a faulty one?
