Soft Solder and Texture Stamping - March 2014

The March 2014 meeting was an exploration Stamping onto Soft Solder.

Lynette Fisk's recent experiments with "texture stamping onto soft solder" are based on work by Stephanie Lee, who has a book and several e-books with video tutorials available. Do a Pinterest search for stamped solder or gilded metal and see what you find!

Check out her online ebook tutorial for HOE (Handbook of Elements) for great bookmaking ideas, plus some soldering tips.

Carol Harder's recent meeting using plaster gauze to make jewelry and Stephanie's book Plaster Studio was the inspiration for the handmade book Lynette brought.


and we also played with making a rectangular bezel out of copper or brass "foil" (36 gauge sheet available at Hobby Lobby) to solder and fill with resin.
