Studio tip Sunday.
Fusing instead of soldering..
Ok...confession....I almost always just use medium solder in wire form. @riogrande order number 101704 Unless I’m doing a one of a kind piece with lots and lots (and lots) of solder operations. Even then. Lazy/efficient ...you decide. So when possible I try to fuse pieces instead of soldering.
Fusing also works great with some designs as well. Right now I’m making tons of branches for a new one of a kind collection. Organic natural designs lend themselves perfectly with fusing. I even go overboard a bit with the heat to get a more rounded look to the edges fused pieces. Swipe to see the fused twigs.
Fusing, if you don’t know is joining the metal with heat at a molecular level. So it’s not going to come apart with further heating, if done properly.
Clean metal works best-as you can see I ignore that too, I go in with a hot flame heating the general piece a bit then hit the spot I want fused. I personally don’t use flux with fusing, that saves me a step. Again lazy/efficient...a theme. Watch indicators on the metal to see when it’s going to fuse. Play, explore, learn your torch and watch your metal. Have fun, but be prepared to to metal some metal while you’re learning. In this clip it would have gone a bit faster if I had brought in the flame closer, but that’s just me criticizing my technique. And yeah I left the flame longer than I needed to. .
FYI my torch is a smith acetylene and air, it doesn’t require an extra tank for oxygen. It pulls in atmosphere air. .
⚪️ it was all a daydream. i've been in such a mood to play and create over the last few weeks. i can't wait to show you all what i'm working on. what are you guys daydreaming into reality this year? / from the archives, 2018 (also the back of my business card) 🔮 ⚪️

Tidal windstorms split
trees and rocks yet cannot
last a day. So much
less, man's work.

When a storm hits, an entire ocean of wind and rain is spent upon the land. Leaves are turned inside out, branches are torn, and even hard granite is worn away. But such gales seldom last an entire day. In spite of the tremendous amount of force that is released, the storm cannot last.
If heaven's works cannot last a day, human works must be even less lasting. Governments barely survive from year to year, The rules of society are constantly being challenged, the family erodes, personal relationships decay, and one's career topples. Even the monuments of the world are now being destroyed by air pollution and neglect. Nothing last. It is simple fact that no event set in motion by humans beings last forever.
All our efforts are temporary. They borrow from pre-existing forces, ride the current of natural events, and disappear according to the dictates of the situation. It is best to realize the transitory nature of things and work with it. Understanding the worlds ephemeral nature can be the biggest advantage of all.

Really, these wizards! You'd think no one had ever had a cold before! Well, what is it?" she asked, hobbling through the bedroom door onto the filthy carpet.
