New found love….
Saturday I took two soldering classes (101 and 201) at The Crafty Scrapper from the super talented Trisha Conlon. I am now addicted and have so many ideas swimming around in my head. So I thought I would show you the charms I made in her classes and then some that I made here at home.
These were made in class 101. The flower one was learning the chunky technique and the other two were just standard straight line soldering. Actually the chunky is taught in 201 but she kinda slid that technique in for me.
These were made in the 201 class. She taught us how to cut glass and do the chunky technique. We made the collage in 101. I added the vintage rhinestone buttons when I got home. The blob that is at the top of the “Queen” charm was a mistake but it made me want to learn how to make dots… so once I got home I made these.
The leaf charm was my first attempt at the dots and I got better once I got to the bird charm. I have a feeling I will be doing the scallop edge a lot. I love that edge and want to play around with decorative scissors too and see what I come up with. So there ya go… you can bet I will be incorporating soldering into my vintage style projects for sure.
If you are thinking about taking a soldering class do it… you will love it.
