I am a little obsessed with antique tintypes. Apparently, they have nothing to do with "tin", they are actually printed on thin sheets of iron. Here is one I picked up recently for a couple of bucks:
I've seen people make wonderful jewelry using these old tintypes. It might be fun to cut this piece into a more pleasing shape, drill a couple of holes in it and make a pendant out of it. I will share the process here in the future :)
Saw Mark Lanegan last night on the final show of the tour. The guy is still making blow-you-away music after all these years! And he had a great band backing him He opened with "Gravedigger's Song:".
