UPDATE since this post was written: Use the No-Clog Writing Caps and you won't need a pin for dunked up tips. You will still need this for all sorts of handy poking you do in paper crafting!
Watch the video or read the instruction below.
Thing is, I often lost them on my work table and I thought it would be nicer if they had a larger "handle."
I found a can of Plasti-Dip in our garage and dipped a bunch of pin ends. They were easier to keep track of and even a little easier to hold...
Such a handy tool, I decided to make some more to show you. But when I got the can out, I discovered it had dried up to a clay-like consistency.
AND even BETTER!!!!
P.S. if you have polymer clay, it would work as well.
