play





















copyright 11/2008 di-did-it
8 x 8 canvas

I completed "play" this evening. This one was fun to make ~ I love taking my propane torch to copper. To modify the grommets, I used a dremmel to scuff them up and an engraver to write words on them.

I absolutely love your "play" canvas. Should I put a propane torch on my Christmas list? I love the look it gives! See you like Chris Cozen...I got to take a class with her recently. She's an awesome teacher! Thanks for visiting my blog, too!

Hey, Pat! Thanks for coming to see me and posting the kind words. Classes from Tim Holtz & Chris Cozen?! I'm going to have to move out west & become your shadow! :)

Oh, and yes, definitely put a propane torch on your list. Watching the copper change color is sooooo cool. They say a heat gun will do it too, but I tried it and just didn't have the patience.

Cheers!

Another very nice piece Miss Di! I want to know how to torch things! (all sorts of things actually!) I'm impressed! A drommel and engraver too? If you're a tool girl, you need to check out DeMeng and Opie and Linda O'Brian (think I spelled those right - it's late and I'm tired) You may be a 3-dimensional girl too! Anyway, love it!

Thanks, Marsha! I love 3-d metal art ~ just bought a small piece Sunday at a show. Maybe some day hubby & I will have welding equipment & a plasma cutter.... oh the fun we'd have! :)

Thanks for the tip on the O'Briens as I hadn't caught wind of them before.
