So I’m out of pewter and it'll be at least a week before I get more so I’ll be chewing through the recycling this week for my embossing projects. The tall cans, like the caffeine drink above, work best simply because they have a larger workable area than the smaller cans. (Makes sense, eh?)
The shape is different than the squares I’ve been doing which is fine... I need some variety. The aluminum is more difficult to work with than the pewter for these knocked-out trees. Tougher to emboss, cut, and bend. So tougher all round. The end result is a little less refined than the pewter (sharper angles for example) but I think they are still appealing and I think people will like the idea of the up-cycled drink can.
Just booked three more craft fairs (Some Good Market in Makinsons) with the possibility of one in St. John’s on the 13th. Looking forward to those!
