Torching it!

Okaaaaay -so, the studio has had a tidy up, the car is basically unpacked and the domestic stuff seen to ...  Time for a little creative play methinks. I unearthed some enamel powders in the tidy up and this arvo decided to have a go at something I have never done before. I made headpins with enamel bulbous bits - EBB's for short. (sorry - I can never resist a good acronym - or a bad one at that!). Check 'em out ...


These were heaps of fun to make and since I didn't have any idea of the 'proper' process, there was a fair bt of trial and error ...


Overall though I would say this was a successful foray into an unknown quarter ...


Of course my favourite ones are the red ones! Now, what to make with them - oh the possibilities are endless!
Happy Sunday!

Looks as if you got the flow with the EBB! Head pins are so much fun to make and even more fun to use your own.

These look fantastic Sue, I've tried them and mine end up very whimpy compared to yours. Do you use MAP gas?

I use propane gas Ro!

Thanks Sue, maybe my MAP gas is too strong. That's what we used in SLK's workshop but we didn't make the pins. Glad you enjoyed Keith's workshop. I did his class for a week in Geelong, I learnt so much.
