Capture the hearts of even the most stubborn bat adversaries by creating a delightful 3-D bat-shaped necklace made of either wood or acrylic, copper, enamel, a curved glass cabochon, and steel wire. You'll learn to use a mini beehive kiln to enamel our domed bat body, showcase a center image, and create a steel necklace I affectionately like to call "Bones."
$15 Kit fee includes:
Detailed instructions & resource list, wood or acrylic shapes, patterned paper, copper bat body, glass cabochon, images, adhesives, enamels, glass eye beads, use of bee hive kiln and drill, steel wire, fibers, markers, micro fasteners, & nut drivers.
Student supply list (I will have a limited number to share):
1/2" bailing pliers, heavy duty wire cutters (like Keiba cutters), chain nosed pliers, large chisel-tipped black Sharpie marker, small file.
The Bat by T. Roethke
By day the bat is cousin to the mouse.
He likes the attic of an aging house.
His fingers make a hat about his head.
His pulse beat is so slow we think him dead.
He loops in crazy figures half the night
Among the trees that face the corner light.
But when he brushes up against a screen,
We are afraid of what our eyes have seen:
For something is amiss or out of place
When mice with wings can wear a human face.
