SOLD OUT - 22 GOLD FUSION ON COPPER AND SILVER - CHRIS DARWAY
14 hours: April 14th and 15th, 9am-5pm each day
Instructor: Chris Darway
Aura 22 was developed to be used on fine silver metal clay as an alternative/supplement to Keum-Bo. This new method allows us to apply Aura 22 to not only fine silver but sterling and copper. Instead of a kiln we’ll use a torch. Once fired the material can be rolled, fold formed, soldered on, drilled and etched. Aura 22 fired pieces are perfect for enameling.
Students will need to supply their own Aura 22, or can be purchased from JCW. Please contact us if you would like to purchase from us. Students are required to bring their own tools for this class, students can also rent a toolkit during the class for $50.
Students will also need to bring the following:
