oops, I almost forgot about Bead Table Wednesday! I was so overwhelmed with my tax rant this morning! I managed to finish my tax stuff and did some errands and then I spent a couple of hours playing around in the studio. I did make a few things, but it didn't feel like a terribly successful session. I learned things and found what didn't work, so that's something.
I was playing with cutting windows out of brass pieces, painting brass, doming, and cold connecting. The hammering wasn't giving me the textures i was hoping for, so I might need to get into some stamps soon.
