Copper butterfly without heat & with heat

toomuchglass(5)August 21, 2010

I experimented ! The fist pic is the copper butterfly I cut out and embossed with the end of a paintbrush & a ball point pen.

After I applied heat with my little butane torch -

( I got alittle too heavy handed with the torch - took off more color than I would have liked.)Oh well .

I'll assemble it later - I just wanted to show you !!

Beautiful,are you going to spray it clear or do you think it will stay that way? You did a great job of embossing it! Jan
