Hey Guys: I was fortunate enough to attend Marilynn Nickleson’s
workshop at Taos two years ago, and this is her tool trick. She
uses shears bought at a garden shop for flower cutting, to cut
her metal. I’ve cut everything up to 18 gauge sheet, with mine
over these last two years, and they are still sharp. If you get
the opportunity to take one of Marilynn’s work/shops, do it! She
is full of techniques, which she is more than willing to share.
