Jane Kmill - Texturing Metal Demo
Date and time
Baggage Building Arts Centre
THUNDER BAY, ON
Free, and accepts optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.
Offered in English.
Wheelchair accessible and has gender-neutral washrooms.
I will be demonstrating texturing copper using metal stamps and texturing hammers. I work mainly with copper and sterling silver. Many of my pieces are textured using metal stamps, texture hammers, laser etched paper using the rolling mill, texture plates and etching in designs using ferric chloride. The pieces are then enhanced by using the torch to create colour or using patinas such as liver of sulfur, or Black Max. Also, I use the technique Keumboo which uses gold foil fused on sterling silver. The gold design is enhanced by using the patina liver of sulfur. I will have many pieces of jewelry which illustrate each technique on display and for sale as well as leather bags from recycled leather coats and small bags.
