I've become obsessed...again.

The thing is...we mixed media artists become obsessed with a new technique or product every week or so...at least I do...heehee..but this last technique has overtaken my senses and I am thinking about this the first minute I wake up...to the minute my brain shut's down late at night.
Currently obsessed with Solder Casting.
Casting: 
  The act or process of making casts or molds.
and in this case...I am casting with Solder,making beautiful shapes with molten solder.


Now there are multiple ways to cast solder,but to be honest,they were all a bit to scary for me. For almost a year, I have tossed and turned, trying to figure out an easy way to cast...


and yes,I finally figured it out and I am over the moon excited about it. I've been working hard to get my new online class underway called "Easy Solder Casting" and I have some fun new things in the works
but I just had to share my 
thrill
my
excitement
my 
new obsession with you.

So be on the look out for Casting news and be sure to stop by my Etsy shop for some new Casting Work...


 and for my blogger friends,
be sure to use "Blog20" for  20% off anything in the shop!
Enjoy your day friends!!
