WOYWW.......The Beast.

Hi WOYWWers, here is the beast I brought back from my class on Sunday, we had great fun making a v. poor job of soldering, but now I understand the method am expecting great things!

The piece on the left is the first attempt, then the bottle cap and then the one on the right, which though not great is already a definate improvement. Despite being quite tricky to master, soldering is strangely relaxing and absorbing. Off to create while the daylight lasts, back for a hop around Woyww blogs later.xx

  2. Having done a little bit of soldering when I did my amateur radio course, I think I will leave it to you. If I need any done, I will be calling on my husband. I am interested to see what you are going to do with it.

  3. Hubby has a soldering iron in the garage. Wonder if I dare borrow it! You have definitley gotten the hang of it. Hugs Mrs A.

  4. Wow, that's one tool I will never be allowed to handle...would probably burn myself or the

    Thanks for the peek and sharing

  5. Sheesh - a soldering iron. Brave, and clever, girl! Will be watching for more results with interest - so far it's looking like you're taking to it like a duck to water :)) Di xx

  6. A new toy!!! What fun,
    keep smiling and creating

  7. Oooo, you’re braver than me….I wouldn’t attempt anything like that.

    Happy Crafting!

  8. Oh I havent used one of those for years, and then it was work related, in a factory,lol

  9. I tried soldering, it's not easy! But I guess like anything, practice makes perfect. I should try it again esp as i have the materials for it! Thanks for reminding me! I like your Suzy cat! Patsy from

  10. Bridget #28 goodluck with the soldering, love your soldered objects

  11. Soldering looks like a worthwhile kind of thing to try to master - like the Marilyn piece. As I'm so late I've peeked at your newer post and your Ten Minute Timmy is fabulous - and I bet he'd never guess you 'cheated' :) Elizabeth x #59
