CLASS DESCRIPTION Metal clay is an amazing innovation: tiny metal particles are mixed into a moist organic binder. It feels like clay as you texture, shape, and embellish it; then the binder is burned away at temperatures just high enough to turn what’s left into a solid metal featuring your original designs.
In this session you will make TWO fine silver charms — for yourself or to give as gifts! You can make them into a pair of earrings, or later dangle them from a bracelet, necklace, cell phone, key ring, or wherever else strikes your fancy.
PLEASE NOTE: Pieces will be fired after class, and available for pick-up at Artsmiths one week later.
