.."a WoMaN's WiSh" SoLdiNG PRoJeCT
Tried soldering for the 1st time--it freaks me out, cuz if it's HOT enough to MELT metal, the imagine what it could do to your skin if it accidentally comes in contact with it! OUCH!
Luckily, I didn't get burned.
OK--this is a three-dimensional Vintage inspired case. It is "paper piecing/collage" inside, then covered with glass, held together with copper tape, then soldered together---finished off with pewter staining. Very fun, very artsy!
