look at that pile of tape backing...only means one thing

the piece is all FOILED!

actually side 1 is all soldered as well...after i place the zinc around the edges i will post the picture

thanks for staying tuned :)

this shows the foiling done see how the project morphs
now you can see all the definition and how interesting the overall design takes the piece.

This is turning out beautiful Mar. I really hope you get the chance to do the lightbox or other light source pictures. I really want to see that yellow glass with light streaming through it.

Mary said...

Oh Mar this is absolutely stunning!!!

You have been busy!

Brian said...

Wow! that's a lot of foil! Although its probably a lot faster than lead.
Do you put another poece of wood on to, make a sandwich and flip it when you're done soldering?

This piece is reall7y turning into something magical with the copper foiling on it. You did a super job, too. No little bumps or wrinkles anywhere. Fantastic piece and fantastic craftsman(woman)ship.
