While I was oxidizing brass on the larger flames in the workshop today this loverly green flame came into my life. How pretty is that, maybe you had to be there to be really focused on it. I don't think my photography skills give it justice here!

Tried my hand at various casting earlier today, with pewter and brass. As you seen in one of my earlier posts I did a wee cast of my thumb, so now that I had it in resin I casted it in metal. Unfortunately I didn't have enough pewter to do a full cast but the half cast I managed to get came out a treat, I'll get a picture up tomorrow. And the brass casting was a fail, I didn't make the funnel big enough so practically none of the liquid brass went into the mould. Round two of that tomorrow I reckon!

SOOOO Mothers Day was quite some time ago here, but this is the only photo I took of what I made for my loverly Mum before I handed them over, not even thinking! boooo! A pair of earrings, silver 0.9 sheet, plastic hand painted figure with clear resin. STUNNERZZZ
On Saturday afternoon, I sat down and was all ready to put the last bits of editing and writing down to finish my dissertation proposal part 3 but low and behold since I am EXTREMELY easy to distract, I ended up going for a 2 and a half hour walk across Abriachan with my Mum and Dad. Bloody bad influences they are!
