'Be Mine' - a small kinetic sculpture made of tinplate

Tinplate Girl made a special Valentine's Day gift using the various metalworking techniques she demonstrates on her awesome instructional site. Tinplate Dad got into the act too. He made a small kinetic sculpture you'll see in the second half of the video. Both projects incorporate tinplate, brass wire, a bit of wood, soldering, and mechanical fastening. No glue was used!

Here is where you can read about and see more images of these two tinplate Valentine's Day projects.

Thanks for the link! When it's in print, the book The Fine Art of the Tin Can: Techniques & Inspirations by Bobby Hansson is great for anyone interested in working in tin.
