Haven't seen someone make a plaster mold for the sole purpose of
being a holding device for soldering, but it makes perfect sense.
Little light bulbs popping in my head!
That's exactly what happened to me when I saw that! I thought,
"Ohhhhh. . DUH! That really would have made *project x, y, or z* so
much easier!" It really is helpful when you guys put up tutorials
like that. Thank you so much. And the piece really is gorgeous! - El
