Etched Mandala Pendant
Anyone can draw! You just have not tapped into your super power yet. In this workshop we will take pen to paper with very simple guidelines to create a mandala that is uniquely your own. Etching is a fun and easy way to get images, design or text onto metal for a raised or recessed effect. Join us to learn about etching metal while making an earthy copper mandala pendant. At the beginning of class, Kim will take you through a short guided meditation to get your creative juices flowing. You will then put your pen to paper to create a one of a kind unique mandala that represents your true essence. Once your drawing is complete, learn how to prepare your design, transfer it to bronze, and safely etch your design permanently into the metal. Techniques covered will also include simple clasp making, surface finishing, and adding a non-toxic patina effect to enhance your mandala design. Students will leave with one pendant ready to wear or gift! This class is limited to eight students. Tools will be available for use.
