Recap & an Announcement

Last night class went really well. I had my 30 g copper sheeting & cut bezel wire. I was able to get 2 cups made. Next week I will be able to solder the cups to copper sheeting. I haven't decided exactly what they will be, but I have a few ideas I'm milling about in my head. I also used my new skull paper punch & some adhesive backed vinyl to make a copper skull that I acid etched. It also turned out well. I was really pleased w/ it. Some leakage occurred, but it only added to the feel of the skull. We also learned how to rivet w/ a soldered post. I have some pieces of coral I may try that technique on, I'm still going over my options.
