Explore the possibilities of etching on metal to create texture and depth in your pieces. First, explore the effects of different types of resists with image transfer paper, paint markers, and lacquers. Then explore a multitude of ways to embellish your etchings with transparent enamels, patinas, wet-inlay enamel, epoxy resin inlay, and stone chip inlay. We will be etching to copper but will also learn how to transfer etches to other metals with the rolling mill. General metalsmithing processes will be covered and no jewelry experience is necessary. Class will not meet on June 30th.
