Mixed Metal Riveting and Etching

Have you ever wondered how a design is added to metal? One way to do it is with a rolling mill, if you are lucky enough to own one, if not...Etching is your answer! We will learn how to etch on copper and brass base metals, add texture by hammering, punch and rivet pieces together for a layered look. A patina can be added to your pieces to bring out the detail if desired. Class fee includes instruction, use of stamps, ink, tools & etching solution. Copper & brass shapes, & rivets can be purchased from the shop prior to class.
