This was my first attempt at soldering its a bit dodge but okish i need more practice them soldering irons are hot you know and very scary LOL.

I used a large oval glass pebble you know the kind that you can buy to put in vases, I glued my own art work to the back using glossy assents, wrapped copper tape around the edge and then added the solder, when done i added some felt to the back.

I kinda like the look of it except for the soldering i found it hard to get it smoothed out by the time I got half way round i ran out of solder so had to start from where i left off and that's where it goes wrong. so if any of you have any HINTS and TIPS about soldering i would be really greatful for your help.

I used the Black and Decker craft tool which has soldering tips knife etc, and the solder goes on the tip of the tool i have just bought a new soldering iron and this is so different the solder beads and you have to get it to drop off before you can smooth it, oh and this ones way hot burnt myself twice and i only used it for a couple of minutes to try it LOL.
