Imagery on Silver
In the 2-day class, students will be introduced to the etching process using electricity. They will learn how to take a drawing, photograph or copyright-free image and convert it into a black and white drawing that can be etched onto silver.
We will be using a scanner, laser printer, vellum (similar to tracing paper), and photo editing software to create our images and print them on PnP film. Students will then etch their drawings onto silver.
There will be time for students to fabricate their etchings into finished pieces of jewelry if they so desire. All levels are welcome.
A sheet of 2-inch X 2-inch sterling silver is included in cost of workshop. Extra metal can be purchased through OQZO Metalsmith.
