This unique and exciting workshop explores metal surface embellishment using current photocopy technology. This process involves a heat transfer of virtually any high contrast photographic or graphic image via transparency film, directly onto metal. By using a mordant (acid), such as ferric chloride, images are etched onto the surface of copper and brass. The etched plate can then be altered by piercing, patination, enameling or used as a printing plate.
