FYI, to protect fingers during hot glue gun usage, I’ve seen some people use silicone finger protectors. I’ve looked them up on Amazon, they’re not very expensive. (USA)… I don’t know if they’re available in the UK, but they should be.
I love the tag team of artists working together! Such a great collaboration ♥️♥️♥️

The commentary has been as entertaining as the mixed media project. Well done Ian and well taught Mike.

Lovely project so far Ian! I love to watch the two of you work together—you make such a great team. Looking forward to Part 2. So far I am not getting the impression that Ian’s in love with the process. Maybe once the final result emerges he will learn that it’s worth the hard work and pain. Hugs to all! 🥰

A wonderful collaboration and I love the team work, although Ian, you make me hurt when you're hurting... OUCH! Hot glue has always made me nervous for that very reason. Very smart putting picture together first before gluing it down to help prevent injury and avoid mistakes too. Well done gentlemen... well done.

Hello you two lovely people, 😄😄 just LOVED this dual project, Mike the teacher and Ian the pupil. You have made my day, I'm doing the Happy Dance. 💃💃Your working together was such a lot of fun, HOPEFULLY, this is the first of many. Love you both individually, but together, you are awesome duo. Can't wait for the 2nd part of the adventure. (It already looks awesome🤩😍) See you in part two, thank you for sharing and making my heart smile. Blessings and hugs from Cape Town. Diana 😊😀🦊🦊

Brilliant entertainment! I shouted "Oh No!!" when I realised I'd have to wait till tomorrow for the rest of it.

Mike your laugh is infectious. Ian is so dramatic. Needing to go to the hospital for touching hot glue. 😍I was laughing at the two of you so much I was oblivious to the art project.
