Faux Tin Workshop
We'll start our retreat on Friday exploring a new variation on my popular Faux Tin technique. Using images from John James Audubon's famous bird studies we'll create a variety of leaves and acorn pendants. We'll cut, file and sand our pieces to a buttery-smooth finish.
Saturday morning we'll jump into the addictive world of salt-water etching. This non-toxic and low tech alternative to chemical etching will open a whole new world of metal working possibilities. I'll share a simple image transfer technique to use as our etching resist. I've gathered images from vintage botanical illustrations to compliment our Faux Tin birds.
