A class in soldering was definitely outside my comfort zone. I don't know what it is, but though I'm comfortable with painting, collage, and assemblage, I have a lot of trouble with more exact art forms. Somehow, my fingers turn into big old bananas and fight me when I'm doing something like wrapping copper foil around a glass sandwich with an image inside. This makes for some frustrating moments for me when I know what to do but my small motor skills don't seem equal to the task. But, as I've said, Paula was very patient and I did manage to create three pendants! I knew I couldn't do the wire and soldering work neatly at this point, so I exaggerated the lack of symmetry. Now that I've done soldering, I'm eager to do more!

I was one of the judges at the mask-making contest and was too busy with my duties to get pictures of the incredible masks that were created. Part of the contest included a runway walk for each contestant. These were so creative and hilarious that I laughed until I cried all my mascara off.
I hope to be part of Art Unraveled again next year!
