Bronze Foundry I — quick update

First class last night. It’s going to be so cool. The supply list includes blowtorches, dremmel’s, heated xacto knives, salvation army pots for melting wax, and whole lot of safety gear (mask, ear muffs, eye glasses, shirts to protect from flying glass, and other stuff). We will make five small projects in aluminum and bronze. And I’ll get the chance to make an iron pour as well. Evidently Iron pours are very rare because they are hard to do right. The teacher goes into a rapture talking about the beauty of pouring metal. I can’t wait for the next class.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
