This picture shows some of the supplies we were using to accomplish these very simple (?) projects. We took a lunch break around noon and I served a Spaghetti Frittata. It was a new recipe to me, but it was very good and we had Cheesecake Brownies and coffee for dessert before we started back to work.
The first project was a metal work pin that has copper and aluminum metal sheet stock and a Chinese coin. We stamped the copper with a rubber stamp, cut out the shape and attached to the background, then glued the coin on and the pin back. We also did a little wire lacing on the edge.The picture shows my primitive metal working skills. But it was fun and will be worn.
The next two projects are made with thin metal sheet stock that is self adhesive. We stuck the pieces together, cut them out and drew the vain in the leaves. Then we coated the top with a clear air dry (1-2 hours) glaze called Glossy Accents by Ranger
The metal in this leaf was a gold with a green over color and I use some brown ink to tone it down. We also tried our had at a little wire work and there again I would call my skills on the primitive side.
The second sheet of metal was a bright gold and I toned it down with the brown ink and then added a little silver ink to one side.
We had a wonderful time, but didn't even get started on the second book of projects we wanted to work on so I'm sure we will need to schedule another Play Date very soon.
