Sawing Metal..


I have spent most of today messing around in my studio sawing metal and practicing my piercing.  The photo shows what I have made so far.  I think I have figured out that my piercing skills are not so bad, it is the finishing I seem to struggle with.  Trying to get that line perfectly straight or curved is tricky!  I need to figure out the best tool to use on my flex shaft for this.  If course I am using copper at the moment to practice on and hopefully I will have a couple of pieces finished tomorrow ready for Etsy shop.

Anyway I really shouldn't have been playing with metal as I have cake toppers to finish, oh well tomorrow is another day before Monday arrives and the week starts all over again :)

I have been working on sawing also. It isn't as easy as it looks! Not that I thought it would be easy...Looks like you are doing great with it.

Thanks Guys!

Janie I am now using a 0.3 blade and it is much easier to control. The last saw blade I was using was much to big and kept catching and my first piercings were such an effort!
