I thought I would share with you how my soldering experience is coming along.
I took Sally Jean's course at Art and Soul last March, and I also signed up for her online class as a refresher. I have also signed up for Terri Brush's soldering classes. All of these have been helpful.
But I find nothing helps as much as hands on practice!
These past three weeks I have had a chance to practice most days. I can see a definite improvement from my very first charms, which is good, because other wise I would loose heart! Lol!
This house shaped charm (the taping is tricky) is the most recent thing I have done.
I find that I am very interested in the art work to go in the charm,
and I have been playing with watercolors and enjoying that very much.
I have learned some things already about taping, about burnishing, cleaning, temperatures....so many things, and each of them really make a difference to the outcome.
My favorite flux is a gel named "Classic 100" and Silvergleem is my favorite solder.
Now if I can just get my hands to hold steady! : )
So I am having fun while I wait for my "style" to reveal itself..lol!
Now about that Downton Abbey ATC Swap.....
(water colored background, tissue paper transfer of castle, vintage flower on her sweet hat!)
So far we have participating.....April 12th last day to sign up....
I am so excited about this swap, I am going to show off every one's ATCs on my blog, it should be a hoot!
Ladies, please confirm my e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will e-mail you back my address.
And if you can, when you send me your ATCs, could you send along a dollar to help with shipping?
And thank you all for stopping by for a visit.
