Melt pot lessons from ginger

Please click on image for detail.
I haven't got a melt pot so, on my annual visit to my friend ginger's she showed me how to use hers. My first piece here is Faux leading on glass. I used two glass slides ( ginger's) and some images (ginger's) sandwiched them together and then under instruction from Ginger I sealed them together with UTEE straight from the melt pot. I decided then and there I HAD to get one for my Christmas LOL. anyway I then added some filigree corner embellishments and bent them around the glass (those were actually mine LOL ) and ginger gave me some chain. I also added a butterfly (also mine) and some pearls (gingers). I was then very generous and gave it to Ginger as a gift. LOL not so generous was it, as it was nearly ALL her stuff ....

  4. Fabby dabby. Your faux soldering looks better than the real thing, lol. This is a lovely piece, but like Paula, I love everything you do!

  5. I love faux soldering - so much easier than the real thing or trying to stick the metal strip around the edges - you get a much better look don't you.

    As per usual - this is just perfect and you always manage a lovely 'twist' - glad you had a lovely holiday with Ginger - would have loved to have been a fly wall - I bet you had so much fun
