I had another "imagining" about the bottle cap project ....
.... I imagined a South American workshop/shed with artisans pounding out and embossing all sorts of tin.
Turning one persons trash into treasure.
The sort of thing made with humble hands and then sold in upscale boutiques in America.
That part of the story is yucky to me.
I'm certain the humble hands only hold pennies in return for their work.
I embossed a blackened piece of tin,
lightly sanded it and then filled in the crevices with yellow paint.
A technique I also used for THIS project.
I have humble hands too ....
... but I'm an American who doesn't need to do this in order to eat.
It's a strange world we live in.
