Tacking Iron

This piece was ruined or so I thought until I got my new tacking iron today!

Wow what a difference ironing down the pieces makes. The iron makes it all so smooth. All the air bubbles and wrinkles came right out. Happy me!

Here is a picture of what the tacking iron looks like. I ordered it from Jonathan Talbot. Here is the web site in case you are interested in getting yourself one of these wonderful gadgets.

What a beautiful piece (and a great tool!) I'm so glad you stopped by my blog so that I would get a chance to check out your work! Lovely!

It is always such a pleasure to see your latest creations, Roberta.
This one is mysterious and open ended, which I love!
If I had not seen the last piece, I don't know if I would read the dark form as bird or not, but I did, and I do. Critics be damned, I like birds. Particularly when they are so abstract as this. I go back and forth between seeing it flitting in the branches to seeing it laying stunned in the snow. For me that ambiguity offers a rich viewing experience.
Glad you found the tool to make this one work!
