When soldering a domed piece of metal to another domed piece or to a flat piece, you create a little pocket of trapped air that builds pressure and can cause your two pieces to pop apart (almost explosively). It's very important that you drill/punch a small hole where you want to solder the piece. This hole will remain directly behind the domed piece and creates a hole for the air to escape rather than building pressure.
Watch Free Simple Soldered Pendants for great instructions and Free Torch Safety Class for essential safety tips.
All of the solderable accent line are also perfect to add to mixed media creations. I use them extensively as add ins to resin pendants, where they glow and add interest to the piece.
Thank you Beaducation!
