Do you want to know more about how to etch metal or are you looking for more ways to apply the etching process? Review the etching process while you expand and explore new concepts for design with metal etching. Explore 3D etching as Carol will introduce you to various sources and kinds of artwork for etching. Initially, we will etch a line and dot reference sampler. We will use paper and acetate to combine images for the purpose of creating a small layered artwork combining various etching applications and patinas, then assemble those layers with 00-90 brass screws and nuts. Using table etching and spray etching methods, we will etch through cooper based alloys. You will learn: a) to make a copper-clad silver laminate for the purpose of etching through the copper layer and b) necessary techniques pertinent to soldering and forming this material. Finally, Carol will demonstrate black, brown, green and especially a dynamic red patina.
