First the brass and still rings. After drilling out rivets and removing excess metal the bits were ready for polishing. They came up well.
I needed to salvage some of the children's resin work as we had a batch that did not harden. In the flurry of activity on the day we probably just did not measure and mix part A and part B properly. Bit of a mess as you can see below.
So I decided to redo 10 glasses and 10 bags of rubbish and resin. I know it does not replace the children's unique work but I just did not want them to feel that did not have a reminder from the workshop.
