Join multi-media artist Sulie Girardi and learn how you can make these beautiful nostalgic mixed media soldered ornaments and keepsakes.

Time to get out all the bits and pieces you’ve been saving for “someday” and combine them into these vintage-looking keepsake trinkets and ornaments. Sulie will show you how to combine your materials for a charming effect you can display at holidays or year-round. Watch close-up and learn how to do the “Tiffany” soldering technique and enclose your collages with a copper foil frame sealed with solder. See how to use a variety of inks and trimmings to create charming vintage effects.
