I'm sorry I shold have been more clear, the soaking has been for easier wrapping when tying them as a quill body. My thought was that maybe the soaking then applying hot tweezers would break fewer biots. Or it could be a complete dead end that I should not have brought up. I will try bending a couple tonight.

Soaking your Biots

John...I would agree with soaking any biots that are wrapped as bodies....it definately makes life easier.

Let me know how you make out soaking them, then using the hot tweezers.
