First of all, how was that even two whole days? I blinked and the weekend was over. These two day weekends just kind of suck.
Ok, so lets recap… I got up Saturday morning and did some torching. It did not go well. I tried to make a Jack Skellington bead and the glass gods were not with me. So I tried again and for some reason, my white glass turned all scummy gray. Then I tried to make a big shamrock bead with a new press and the green glass shocked and flew down my shirt. Note to self – wear turtlenecks when torching, not scoop necks.
Then I was going to try again and reached for the wrong end of the press. For the record, those things get a little hot, and by “little” I mean “super”. After that, I just made round spacers since I couldn’t do anything right.
After the fail that was my torch time, I came in to paint up some copper that I had etched last week. They came out nice and some of them are posted on Etsy right now.
