Students will texture copper and/or silver using two etching techniques: Electrolytic and etching with acid. In both forms of etching, students will learn the best type of resist to use, such as Sharpie Marker, Staz-on Ink, nail polish, tape, or a special paper to transfer a design onto the metal. The textured metal will then be formed using the hydraulic press. Students will learn to use acrylic and anti-clastic bracelet forms to shape the metal using the hydraulic press and produce a pair of earrings and a bracelet. Students must contact the instructor prior to class to discuss materials to bring to class.
