Soldering 101 with Rochelle Gaukel
Join me in my studio where all the soldering happens. In this course you will learn the fundamentals and techniques of soldering glass charms. First part is designing the charms before they get wrapped up with the copper tape. You will learn how to solder your charms and also those charming scallop bumps (which take a lot of practice), as well as how to antique the shiny silver of your soldered charm to an aged patina look.
We will be using rhinestones, buttons, glass glitter, vintage book pages, and some images. The list goes on and on of what you can make inside your charms.
When you discover how easy these are to make, you will want to sit down and make hundreds more! This course is great for the beginner solder student and will provide a foundation of what can be made with soldering.
