Bookmark Process Post #4

Today, in the Art Metals 1 class, some of the students soldered the frames of their bookmark to the top pieces. Emily Sanders was one of the students. I asked her a few questions about what she is currently working on and when she hopes to finish the bookmark.

  1. Emily, what are you currently working on?
    1. I have just finished soldering my frame to the top of my bookmark and now I am preparing the bottom of the bookmark to be attached.
  2. And how are you doing that?
    1. I have cleaned it by pickling it and now I am filing the bottom piece so that it will fit with the top.
  3. What will the next step be?
    1. Next, I will solder the base of my bookmark to the top of the bookmark. I am about to do this right now. 
  4. When do you expect to be finished?
    1. Hopefully, before school ends. We have 2 more classes.

Shortly after I talked to her, Emily completed the next step of the process by soldering the bottom of the bookmark to the top. I asked her questions about this as well.

  1. What have you just finished doing?
    1. I have just finished attaching the base of the bookmark to the top by soldering the two pieces together.
  2. Was this challenging?
    1. No, not really, it took me less than 5 minutes.
  3. Are you happy with the way it came out?
    1. Yes. It was easier than expected.
