ETCHING

(Beginner, Intermediate) (4 Hours)

 

Produce an image or a raised design on your copper or silver by chemically removing select areas of metal.  This sheet can then be formed, soldered, enameled, etc. We will learn about and use mordants and resists as we create components suitable for almost any jewelry application.  Chemical safety, electro-etching, image selection and sources for supplies will be discussed.

 

Includes copper, chemicals, special resist paper with images. Silver (optional) is available for an additional charge.

 

 

Note: Please bring a pair of safety goggles and wear old clothes to class.
