Golden Texture: An Introduction to Roll Printing and Keum Boo
March 25, 2017 (8:30 am - 4:00 pm) — This fun beginning workshop introduces you to two completely different metals techniques, and while each one by itself will add a new dimension to your metalworking repertoire, together they create high-impact drama on simple sheet metal. First, you'll learn how to use a rolling mill to create deep, detailed patterns on both copper and sterling silver using a variety of materials, including paper patterns. Then you'll learn the process of depletion gilding as a method of preparing sterling silver for the application of pure 24k gold foil. This ancient Korean technique, known as Keum Boo, adds the luster and warmth of real gold to your jewelry pieces for a striking and unique design element. Visit website
