Starting with pre-cut copper discs, students learn 3 different methods to create resist designs to apply to the copper pieces. Using a safe, low acid etchant, we create a raised surface wherever our designs have been placed. Hole drilling is also done so that the pieces can be made into earrings and pendants.
Using skills from part 1 during the first half of the class, a variety of pieces are made. The rest of the class is devoted to manipulating the surface colours to create stunning patinas in a variety of ways.
