Hidden Images - Copper Foil Overlay
with Cathy Claycomb

Thursday, January 31st, 2019
9:00am - 5:00pm
 $220
Limit 10 students

From Cathy’s, "Let’s learn something different!" class series.
 Learn how to make copper foil overlay the main focus of your work. Execute larger areas of solder in very fine detail and add solder "sculpture" to larger, more intricate patterns. Work a one-sided design, but add brass or copper wire and glass globs for added realism, dimension and special effects. Featured in numerous publications, signature works are executed on "head glass" and are displayed in fine art galleries and private collections across the globe. This class will dispel every rule about working directly on the glass, heat fracture, design mass, adhesion and more! Work a stained glass masterpiece without cutting glass!
