We will start the session off with a short demonstration on the process to get you comfortable with metalwork. Then, we play! Create any designs you want. Everything looks great etched into metal! Once you create your design we transfer it onto a piece of copper or brass sheet metal and prepare for the acid bath! While your pieces are being etched we will go over some notable facts about etching and a brief history of the process. The last half of the session will be focused on beautifying your little treasures. We can sand, buff, and shine em’ however you like!
