Susan and I took a class at Becky's making these bottles last night.
We learned how to solder. Something I'd been wanting to learn for years now!
I learned a lot.
Soldering guns can be hot!
Not all soldering guns are created equal. Some are better than others.
Too much flux is a bad thing.
Working too fast is a bad thing. Take your time.
2 cracked bottles and some encaustic wax later - VIOLA!
One of my favorite hand painted bottles.
I did not paint this. I wish I could've.
Some day when I'm old and grey, I'll learn to paint.
Until then, there's always Photoshop or Piknik!
