Mom and I went to Walmart for some supplies - paper towel, gloves, mask, funnel...Once I got home I set up the studio while mom finished up the Viking Knit we were going to use to make bracelet's and earrings. I set up the patina on the table that has our torches, the only spot big enough to do anything and where I felt comfortable using the torch on the Viking Knit. As you can see it was like a mad scientist's work station - this was so much fun! Well, except when I melted two end caps because I wasn't paying attention.

I think I did better on the Viking Knit and End Caps for the Saffron and Paprika patina. I had better coverage overall and I worked better with the Viking Knit and findings - had more practice before I worked with these colors.

I also played by dipping of Viking Knit in two patina's. I dipped one of the Viking Knit bracelets in the Paprika and then the Saffron patina. I think the colors turned out wonderful, but I won't know until I sand the bracelet and then seal it.
I will take photographs of the finished pieces when we get them made up into bracelets and earrings. Stay tuned!
