Class Description: 

Inspired by Mexican folk art this 25 inch tall pewter angel on wood will offer you an opportunity to explore a variety of metal embossing tooling techniques. We will create wings and a flowing robe on lead free pewter sheet using simple hand tools to create low and high relief designs. You can adapt the embossing template to your taste and will also have a choice of three different transparency faces to choose from, learning how to apply and enhance the design. We will use a chemical pewter oxidizing solution to create an antique patina and horse shoe and regular nails to create a halo for our mixed media angel. All supplies and tools for use in class are provided.
