VA137 - The Mystery of the Manuscript

Debbie Rijns
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday October 4

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

There has, for millennia, been mystery surrounding ancient
manuscripts. I have certainly been intrigued by the stories they tell
and the the stories that have yet to be revealed.
We will make a reliquary from PMC that will hold your own manuscript
written on parchment. We will embellish this piece with a natural
stone cabochon and make a dangle from a matching bead.

Kit: $20.00 payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
Clay Roller
Rolling Strips
Fine Silver Bezel Cup
Natural Gemstone
Fine Silver Wire
Beads for dangling
Polishing Cloth

You will need to bring:
1 x PMC3 25g
1 x PMC3 Syringe (optional for embellishing)
Resist for hands and tools (Badger Balm)
Hand Drill (Pin Vise) and 2mm Drill Bit
Sand Paper 400 grit
Stainless Steel or Brass Brush
Pen for writing on Parchment
Rubber Stamps for impression on Reliquary
