Diane Cook shares her experience and special tips and tricks for preparing and stamping several styles and sizes of pre-made brass metal cuffs.
These are some of the things you will be learning in this
- Steps for successful etching, which will include important safety measures you should observe, including how to dispose of your enchant once finished.
- Different patina options, including a very special surprise patina not shared with any other of her Etched & Layered classes!
- Ways to layer your cuff, with demonstrations using a vintage brooch, ear bob, shoe or dress clip, and brass filigree and charms…the possibilities are endless!
- Attachment methods in cold join technique which you can transfer over to many projects far beyond your Etched & Layered Cuffs.
