Here's just a TIP


 
Yep, we're back up North. I love this picture so I thought I'd share it again.

It was simply a perfect day on the lake. The fishing was fantastic and the weather gorgeous! We even had Fish Fry for dinner....we'll both sleep good tonight!






This is our cabin number..it's really a duplex with 2 sides. I get the loft upstairs to play with my G45 project I'm working on, and my computer. This sloooooowwwww WiFi is driving me crazy!!!!


So here's the tip I mentioned....it's really a cool and simple thing you can do with your metal pieces.

Give it a try!




Depending upon how you like your pieces of "hardware" for your projects, this is a TIP from me.

I used the Locks from Tim Holtz. On the RIGHT is the before....the one on the LEFT ( I know backwards) is the after.

I used the new Vintaj Metal Reliefing Block to sand the high points of the lock, and then buff the finished piece.




Here is the before on the Left and the after on the Right.

You can use a sanding block, but it does have a heavier grit to it, and doesn't have the polishing side.

Either way, you can see the difference in the piece.

Try it. I LOVE the contrast!
