Tiny Glass & Copper Journal

$ 185  

Do good things really come in small packages? Well, this tiny little glass and copper journal is absolutely jam-packed with charisma and charm and will surely become a cherished treasure once you fill it with your photos, writing, or art.

Students will fabricate "from scratch" a tiny little 4" x 3" glass and copper journal. I just love the way the vintage photo transparencies look against the metal, but the images on the front and back covers are entirely up to you, just bring 4 transparency images 2"x3". I will even give you several other design choices as you construct this tiny version of my original all-metal, no-sew binding. We'll attach the copper and baroque swirled glass covers with delightfully rusted hardware. Just a few of the things you will be learning are: glass cutting, alteration of metal with torch and patina, hardware applications, hand tools, shop safety, metal fabrication, wire wrapping, basic book binding, and lots of other cool tips and tricks for a mixed media artist!
