I am still waiting for my safety goggles and mask to arrive until I can experiment further with my glass engraver.
During the week I had been sorting out my CD's as new sideboard arrived and all had to be transferred so what better time to sort out and dust them off. I found so many still sealed and untouched lol - bit like everyone's crafty hoard. Well after culling the music I didn't have the heart to throw the excess CD's out so off they marched to my craft room where they will remain as clutter - just moved to a different room lol.
So.... I decided to make use of them - I made a brooch. I cut out wing shapes to start with. I then messed about with alcohol inks and achieved the look I wanted. I used my engraver to give the effect of the wing veins. I triple embossed using utee and then sprayed with silver mica, heated it up to give the pitted look. Trouble was I could no longer see the veins clearly enough. So out come the engraver again and voila finito - well after the brooch pin was attached lol.
Not too many pics this time....
Thank you for dropping by and really hope to see you again soon
