My first attempt at mini soldering. I did some stained glass many years ago so wasn't totally new to soldering, but making something in miniature is a new experience. After much bending, twisting, fluxing and soldering, with a few expletives mixed in, I came up with this. The design is based on a rustic wire one I bought in France on my last trip back in 2001. My version is very rustic so I painted it to look like rust. Quite enjoyed the experience and will try another one.
Welcome to three new followers, Roberto, Nuria and Sylvia, will enjoy following your blogs also.
One shot is the newly finished candelabra, second shot painted (have difficulty positioning the pics). I've added a better shot of the finished piece to show the size and I don't think the previous one did it justice!!
Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope you like my new look, I needed a change from black. Here you can share my miniature endeavours, perhaps be inspired by some of my photographs taken in France and of 'real world' treasures that can be made in miniature. My love of parterre-style gardens and study of horticulture made my decision for the theme of my little shop an easy one. I just hope I can successfully interpret my ideas in 1/12th scale!
