What was I thinking?

turtle head

I am dreading this. Absolutely frakking dreading it. I do not know what I was thinking…

Well, yes I do. I was thinking of how pretty the shell was going to look… not what a nightmare it was going to be to cut and grind all the itsy-bitsy, tiny pieces for the head. Gah!

I contemplated doing an overlay. But I think the chances of one of the little bits tearing is too high. When I did the butterfly overlay, there were large areas of the copper foil intact. With this piece, it would be more like a spider-web, just the outline. Maybe I’ll clump some of the pieces together and do single line overlays… that’s not a bad idea.

Wish me luck!
