A few weeks ago, I posted on here regarding a shop called En Route in Chesham, whilst there I saw lots of fantastic south American art which had all been made from scrap metal.
They had wooden mirrors that had been covered with old rusty battered American number plates, these had been welded together and then tacked to the wooden frame.
I wish that I had a picture to show you because they were so cool.
Anyway this inspired me to attempt altering a wooden mirror myself, I wanted to achieve the effect of scrap metal welded and tacked together onto a wooden frame without having to use metal or a welding machine! :).

I also had a go with an old biscuit tin.
I will be running a full day workshop at the Craft Barn on October 29th which will cover all of these techniques.
You can book by simply calling them on 01342 836398.
Apologies, the September workshop is fully booked.
