Intro
Electrolytic Etching with salt is a wonderful process that combines well with enamelling, and can easily be used in any type of studio setting. In this class, the instructor will walk students through the steps of preparing non-ferrous sheet metal for etching to produce deep relief in the surface of the metal.
These etched pockets will be filled with wet-packed glass enamel, fired in a kiln or with a torch to create a traditional style of Champlevé enamels. Students will gain an understanding of how this unique method of creating 3-D texture in low relief can be applied to an extensive array of metal objects and jewelry.


When: 25th of April - 26th of April 2020. 9 am - 5 pm both days.
Cost: $265USD plus Materials Fee $80USD (+ an extra $60USD if you wish to use silver).
For complete information about tool list, Lab Fee and other questions please contact Tacoma Metal Arts  Center directly: info@tacomametalarts.com.
Language: Workshop taught in English or Spanish.
