So, onto my worktable. Well, I have been busy experimenting with more soldering lately. I have been inspired by Facebook pal Christine Alane to go a bit outside my box and tackle soldering these hearts. I have had the stashed since I dug them out of an old barn at a friends ranch. The aunt that lived there was a serious
I have about a dozen or so of these blank glass (heavy) hearts. I set about adding foil tape after cleaning them really well. This is the first one I did:
The next one did not go so well.. its the one with the pink embellishment. Its better now and Hannah soldered a loop to the bottom so I can add some danglies too it.
Finally, I did the one with the cameo today. I am only using a soldering iron and don't have a torch so I haven't been able to attach the embellishments with solder. I have been using clear silicone caulk and it seems to be doing the trick.
I am in the process of taping some others up and trying out different patterns. There is only really so much I can do with the tape itself so I think I might order a sheet of foil to play with on future versions. Its kind of fun to focus on this series of pieces. I have so many ideas!
Here is the picture I took just before heading back into the house. Its my main work table in the studio. It hasn't been this cleared off and organized in a looooong time :) It will be put to good use this weekend when my friend Vicki comes down.
What's on your work table??
