What's Included

Friday In this unique workshop, instructor Darlene Armstrong will present the specific steps to chemical etching on copper and brass using 2 different methods: 1. Free hand drawing with a special non-toxic Elmer’s paint pen: Using the fine tip paint pens offers a way to “doodle” and “zen-doodle” creative designs directly on the clean metal. This is fast and fun. 2. Using PNP paper allows students to use any printed material for etching. Darlene will show how to “clean up” your design for optimal transfer using a salt based chemical called ‘Ferric Chloride’ and how to successfully transfer your image onto your metal. Studio Fee is $15 for this workshop.
