Not what I expected @#!&*!#

So, I decided to work on my piece and really wanted to do some cloisonne . I started with a nice transparent blue and green base and then cut my wires out. I was going to do a palm tree. I used a new adhesive for my cloisonne wire and the design was really great. I had done cloisonne before but with another glue. Okay, I fired it up and #?!*%#@ if the #@#! thing didn't burst into flames in my kiln. Needless to say that adhesive is gone!!!!! I hurried to get the piece out and then was able to clean all the burn off. The copper was still good so I made a change in color and design. Alas!! I had no more cloisonne wire left. Well, here it is.

  1. Agh! I think so any of us are used to those unexpected kinks!! But like a good designer, you just adjusted your design. Way to go!
