Last week I soldered! I had to solder silver wire on to the backs of the tiny flowers I cut out. I will thread the wire through small holes I drilled in the flowers to attach the flowers together. The whole soldering process was pretty easy. But I have to admit I am not a fan of all the mess and toxic fumes and chemicals. Plus, this kind of metalworking requires a real studio with proper and expensive equipment and ventilation. So I think I will continue to taking classes at Craft Alliance and learn more techniques but I will stick to metal clay at my home studio.
