fire – molten

August 14th, 2010 at 13:11

Ok, ok, ok, so I said I would give back the soldering iron, now that I have the wood burning tool. And I did, for about 72 hrs. Honestly I did. But today I spotted one of my old stone carving experiment pebbles and, well, I tried out something new. I had to get the soldering iron back. Melting metal surely that does fit the theme of fire, no?

silvery swirl, the pebble is granite and came from our local beach. The mika in the granite glitters, too, and goes well with the soldering lead. The pebble is about 3 inches across at it’s biggest diameter.

    Molten metal does indeed fit the FIRE theme!

    What gorgeous rocks! And the silvery swirl suits that granite rock so well!!

    I love that! Recently I’ve been crocheting around rocks I collect from Lake Huron. It’s lovely to handle rocks worn by water. I may get out my soldering iron and give some spirals a try!
