Overview

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 through piercing, patination or enameling, or it can be used as a printing plate. There will be ample time for experimentation 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.

Appropriate for all skill levels.
