Kristi Ross and Stephanie Savic Polk - Acid Etching & Enameling 101
Welcome to Acid Etching and Enameling 101 where you will learn to apply images and color to copper! The class will begin with the basics of acid etching on copper. Students will learn how to apply a resist to copper and then utilize ferric chloride to etch the copper. From there we will explore adding enamel to your etching, a technique known as Champleve’. Champleve’ is the process of inlaying enamel into the recessed compartments created by the etching process. No previous experience is necessary.
