Today i suffered a tragedy. My poor, long suffering electric drill fell off the bench and went straight in the bucket of water i keep handy....It wasn't on but it was plugged in, its now sitting next to the wood stove gently drying out, i hope it will survive. Without it i loose my ability to make small shiny things.. speaking of which...
That's about and inch tall all polished up and bright. The camera doesn't like focussing so near but you get the idea.
As you can see they do go brown even with a wax covering.
Currently, i made about 20 kilt pin things, they are off with a friend who hopes to sell them at vintage clothes fairs etc... we live in hope ah.
And i have a box in the shed that looks like the toy box of a nascent serial killer.
