    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Anne asked: "how do you get the crayon off the iron?"
    A: While the iron is still hot, just use a paper towel to wipe off the excess crayon. Next run the iron over some scratch paper to get rid of the rest of the residue.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Kim has a suggestion for the Clay Hanger tutorial: "I'll bet a set of chimes could be made with this concept!!!"
