Learn to create beautiful texture by combining molten silver with copper sheet. Ruth will show you how to cut a shape from copper sheet for your project, then you will cover it with texture through the molten magic of melted silver! The result is a wonderfully rich surface texture of ridges and waves. Then, you will learn how to apply an iridescent patina with a torch by flame painting the surface. Ruth will also show you how to make a beautiful silver chain to hang it from. Students can expect to finish pendant and start on the chain during class, or 2-3 molten magic pieces.
