Second We Three Play Day

The nice thing about being a Play Day host is I get to choose the medium we'll be working in. This month I have chosen solder and Dana, Kathy, and I will actually be making a completed item (or three), as opposed to last month, when we practiced a technique (dyed fabric).

A while back, I found an article in Somerset that I wanted to try. Try as I might, I could not find that article. I only have a general idea of the technique, so most of this will be improvisation. I made up the directions based on my poor memory, so they are pretty basic.
I made a list of supplies we would need:
Stemmed glasses
Soldering iron (each person will bring her own)
Solder
Flux
Acid brush
Copper foil
Glass cutter
Paper towels
Sand paper
Glue gun
Hot glue
Ammonia
Latex gloves
Embellishments
Images (each person will bring her own)
Charms
Craft sheet (each will bring her own)

Poppy seed muffins are poised and ready to get us off to an artful beginning, along with jasmine flower tea for Kathy and Dana, and coffee for me.


You can see we'll have a full table when everyone gets their things here. At least all Kathy and Dana have to bring are their soldering irons, craft sheets (to protect my table from errant solder), and their own drink mugs.

I have set up the hot glue gun on the workbench, along with a block of moss and some crinkled, shredded paper to decorate the base of each glass. Now to put the other two chairs out, and I'll be ready to go. It should be an interesting day.
