4 Saturdays, 2-4PM: October 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th
This 4 session course will cover the preparation of metal surfaces for a range of patina techniques.
Application of hot and cold patina formulas on a variety of metals will be explored. Steel, copper, brass, aluminum, zinc and stainless steel can be textured and colored to produce a nearly limitless range of colors. Methods of preserving the finishes will also be addressed in detail.
Fine decorative finishes can raise a piece of metalwork to high craft. By understanding the interaction of surface and finish it is possible to add real beauty and value to your work.
