Etched Bracelet - September 2013

We are switching our schedule around a bit - and Pat Kuehn is going to share her etching techniques with us.

(Pics are random samples from the web - not Pat's designs).

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 

5:00 pm Trunk Show Prep
Those 11 members who are exhibiting at the Saturday, Sept. 21 trunk show at Eclectics Gallery will meet to price, inventory and tag items for the exhibit. You are welcome to have a personal tag with name, website, artists' info, etc. but price tags must be removable. We'll use removable stickers and/or tiny hang tags. (in addition to your personal tags)

7:00 Make an Etched Copper Bracelet

Pat Kuehn will help us etch a copper bracelet blank. (Non-members or guests participating will be charged a $5 materials fee.) Pat is bringing everything we need - copper blanks, design transfers, etchant, etc.

Please bring:
  • work surface (something to protect the table where you are working- silicone mat, newspaper or paper bag??)
  • blue painters tape, 1" wide
  • green scotch brite scrubby or fine steel wool
 We will be using Pat's pre-prepared designs. We'll discuss patina options, but will not have time for that step.

 The OCTOBER meeting will include two topics:
  • Stenciling with Paste Technique

  • Inlay Using Multiple Metal Clays
