yeah its easier when u see something close up.

its not to hard to do , just remember fingers smudge so keep some of those cd/glasses wipes handy, dont want to wet the item with spray, your pics smudge if wet, but a little cleaning  oof slide as u go means its nice and shiny. oh and i use some holders to hold the piece as i solder, get em in dicksmith, it gets so hot.

I like your new website...  (and I love your new bottle for flux...  the old one was leaky, ewww...)  Thanks for a fun product.  I found it at the nw scrap convention, a few years ago.  It was exactly what I was looking for, and helped me to finish a project that had been in my head for YEARS!
Wow!!!  So much talent I am very impressed!!

I love my kit that I got, too!  Without Lisa, I wouldn't have had nearly as much fun as I have been having with soldering!!  I tried something new the other day.  I had been wondering how to solder on glass marbles and decided to take some unfinished marble magnets (without magnets on them) and put a small metal disk behind them (the size of the marble).  

I taped around it with that scalloped tape and here is the result.  I think it turned out neat and sort of different looking.  I like how it is soldered all the way around.  

Still not waterproof or anything, but a little more stable, I suppose than the way I usually solder around the marbles.  It was easier to do it this way, too for some reason.   I did put it up for sale, but I thought the technique was interesting, so I thought I'd come back to the thread that got me started with this in the first place!

haha mmd!  I think you'll find it easier than you'd think.  One other thing I was going to add was that I kept the marble upside down and let the solder make it's little blobs on the scalloped paper (so they stick out more.)  Hope that makes sense!

OK, so finally, after admiring these for EVER...  I found a soldering iron at Michaels for $14.99 (and of course I had the 40% off coupon) so I thought it was time.  These are looking pretty sad, but I figure I'll get better with practice!
