Faux Etching, Surface Design on Metal, Taos New Mexico, October 7th, 2017

Oh how I love texture on metal! This workshop evolved from a happy accident, ever since I’ve been having a blast etching anything that I can get my hands on!
In this workshop, you will learn a fast & easy technique for creating “etched” metal surfaces without having to deal with toxic chemicals & hours of agitation. After etching the metal in the morning, we will spend the rest of the day constructing a unique figurative sculpture using the metal that we altered. While working on the sculpture, we will cover basic cold connection methods as well as composition & design. I will also demonstrate a quick & easy way to make a mold of just about anything. If you’d like, please bring some extra metal to etch, you can etch these in the morning & take them home to use in other projects. This technique will become a treasured favorite and will be useful in many other projects. You will leave with at least 1 figurative sculpture, 2 or more if you work fast & bring extra tins & heads!
