Dabbling and fun!

Had just the tiniest bit of time to play in the studio this afternoon … No time to get involved with a big project.  So – I decided to play with some metal stamping …

Hmm – easy enough.  So then I thought, why not make a plant marker … Used what I thought was a ‘cheap’ spoon.  That bad boy was tough.  My little girly hammer and ‘anvil’ weren’t even touching it!  So down to the man cave I went, in search of some TOOLS.  Got it to flatten – but can’t get my stamped images to show up.  Hmmm – I’ll have to give this some thought – or maybe find easier to stamp (thinner) spoons …???

But now, it’s Family Time.  Taking the kids to the movies for ‘The Avengers’ … I’m excited!  Smile


About claytonhill

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com

    Stainless steel is too tough. But old silver plate is just right.
