They are great for our disabled people to use to help add more beautiful colours to their fabulous designs. Just makes that paint dry a little faster or that glue stick a little quicker. Does anyone out there have a hairdryer they no longer use. We would love to become its proud new owner. Happy to receive more that one as they will continue to die with the joy they will bring. Thanks so much. Jo Clement
