so I know some of you are antsy

(ahem...Andrea...cough*) to see this new piece I've alluded to. I hope I haven't hyped it up too much. Would hate to disappoint!

The reason I haven't shown it yet is because this piece calls for an antiquing of the silver, if you will. It just doesn't look right to me with a bright finish. So yesterday, I tried my hand at oxidizing with hardboiled eggs but it just didn't do the trick the way I wanted it to. So I need to get my hands on some liver of sulphur.

Well, I JUST found out about a place I can get it locally (yippee! don't need to wait on shipping!) so as soon as the munchkin wakes up from his nap, we're off! Hopefully I'll be able to put up some pics tomorrow after I try it out.

I am so excited to try this stuff out! So, thanks for your patience. :)

woo hoo! I got a mention. You're very daring...I've been too scared to venture into LOS land. Let me know how it turns out! Can't wait.
