New Old Tool

I thought you might get a kick out of this...I've been looking everywhere for something that is rounded, so I could bend the spoons around it...yea!!! I found this...it is sooo cool. I can put the screw part down in my vise and bend away..works great!!
Abstract art?? LOL. I just thought I would see if I could make you laugh...I have a problem...always have, now I need to share my problem...I use what ever is within reach as my palette..The phone book cover, junk mail, plastic lids...and this piece of marble, remember when I told you how we got some free marble chunks, this is the one I put my soldering on...well, it was laying there...and I used it for a palette!!! Its great, scrapes right off with a razor blade.lol
I will pick a winner for a spoon tomorrow, so if you haven't left me a message, please do. right here. I have two more spoons finished and I found a great way to display them...do want to see???? Oh, to answer your question. No, I don't sketch on my design. I just start painting.

I have always used freezer paper. so I could just throw it away.

You can also use the plastic lids from butter tubs. I like freezer paper for covering my work space when I'm gluing anything. Easy cleanup!

Laurie, why did I want the tray because I can paint anyway? I love your style and I don't do tole painting. So I'm very appreciative of your artwork on the tray! :-)
Thank you for this generous gift! I hope you like the spot where I hung it. I can see it every day!

Clever girl! I use whatever I can find for a palette too.

You sound like a regular silver smith. I get my blacksmith hubbie to do the anvil work/play. Your spoons are fab!
