I'm starting out with a plain silver ring, to which I'm going to solder some silver and copper blobs. Blobby blobby blobby!
OK, right. Here we go. Excuse my fingernails, I've been testing out gilding nails with copper leaf. It actually worked pretty well, this is a few days afterwards..
other exciting stuff, but this shape is exactly what I want for this ring.
So yeah, solder paste is pretty neat. I don't expect I'll use it all that much for day-to-day soldering jobs, but for the few things like this that it's great for, I think I'll be glad to have some around.
The reflections in this ring make it look a bit weird, I might have to reshoot these photos. Came out nicely though.
You can buy this ring here.
