This unique and exciting workshop explores metal surface embellishment using current photocopy technology. This process involves a heat transfer of virtually any high contrast photographic or graphic image via transparency film, directly onto metal. By using a mordant (acid), such as ferric chloride, images are etched onto the surface of copper and brass. The etched plate can then be altered by piercing, patination, enameling or used as a printing plate. There will be ample time for exploration and creativity. We will also explore direct laser copy onto metal. A photocopier will be available for the transfers. This is an excellent class for printmakers or photographers who wish to expand their artistic palette. Students will be supplied with a list of items to bring. Appropriate for all skill levels.
