hey kim

how thick is the tin that you're working with?

what are you doing with it?

could you quasi-sew it together using punch holes and either a very thin wire or twine?

you could use epoxy, i think... i was just speaking with another artist about this very same problem. he was trying to connect shards of soda cans...

its very thin..its not as thin as a soda can is .. good idea about the wire .. im gonna try that .. thanks
my goal is with the tinis to make lamps .. shades etc.. i was thinking instead of a curtain valance .. i would make a light valance for my bedroom using the tin to kinda hide the candles.. adn things like that .. thanks for the idea ill try more if you have any http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

i think it would look really cool punched and laced with a constrasting wire. please post images as you work.

i'm very interested in seeing what you come up with.
