Working With Cork


Kaefer found some of the cut up corks the Geek created :


Since she wants to make a cork board, she was ready to make her very own designs.

The only thing you need - beside the cork of course - is a magnifying glass and the sun. Collect the sun rays in the magnifying glass and direct them to the cork. The moment you see smoke, guide the cork with your fingers to "paint" your own design. Make sure to wear sunglasses - it's extremely bright!


Kaefer made this beautiful swirl:


I love her creativity.

what a fabulous way to spend a day,

however, we do not get sunshine in England, certainly not strong enough or for long enough to burn a swirl...

I bet you need a steady hand for this. It's a nice bit of lateral thinking. I've used a wood-burning tool on cork but solar power is very superior! Green energy ;-)

wondering if you burn long and deep enough could these become stamps?
