Foiling the geodes and nodules and other small accents.

This photo does not show the true colors of these geodes and nodules but it does show the copper foiling process I must complete on every single piece that goes into this design.  
After each piece is carefully wrapped in copper foil, I use a wooden fid that has a tip on one end and a thick rounded edge at the other end. I have used this fid for at least ten years now. I have two and they are my favorite tools to use for this process.
