Copper and Japanese Patinas Workshop

The final step in finishing a mokume gane piece is to apply a patina to highlight the colors of the different metals. This can be a tricky business, and is often done in a rush at the end of a class. But not here! Spend a full day exploring the different ways to patinate copper and copper alloys - we go way beyond liver of sulfur. We'll cover the mysteries of getting copper red, how to tease out the most contrast between your copper and brass, and of course all about rokusho (yes, there will be grated daikon). Intermediate/advanced students, bring your ready-to-patinate work to this class. It doesn't have to be mokume, but should have some mixed metals, hopefully copper and silver (shakudo and shibuichi would be great too). We'll also have sheets of plain copper available for those just wanting to learn and practice the techniques and color possibilities.
Class goes from 9am to 4pm with a lunch break from noon-1pm.
