If you can use a glue gun, you can solder successfully.
When you realize how much you can do, you will want to get started
For example, you can permanently preserve the dried
flowers from your wedding bouquet between glass slides that are
soldered together. Make mixed media art from personal keepsakes
that will last long enough to pass down for several generations.
You can make photo frames exactly to your own specifications without
spending a fortune at the frame shop. You can even make jewelry
items that rival those found in galleries.
Best of all, with relatively little expense, you can
open your art experience to a whole new world of possibilities.
The projects in this book will inspire your imagination and fuel
your creative drive.
