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.

Oh Mar this is absolutely stunning!!!

You have been busy!

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.
