Additional Information
Description:
Create a bold pair of earrings that mimic the look of brass and copper in the daylight but come to life with vibrant, unexpected colors when the lights go off -- and learn how to powder-coat metal while you’re at it! Join two former editors from Art Jewelry magazine to explore their proprietary blend of glow-in-the-dark powder coat. Discover the joy of powder coating with a fluidizing bed -- a simple tool that makes it easy to apply an even coat of powder on your metal. Learn how to prepare the metal, apply the powder, cure the powder, and then use sterling silver wire and simple wire-work techniques to create hangers and earring wires to complete the earrings.
Students will Learn:
Learn how to safely and simply (and inexpensively) add color and a durable protective finish to metal components; how to apply a proprietary blend of glow powder coat with a fluidizing bed for a glow-in-the-dark effect; how to incorporate this industrial coating process into your home jewelry studios with minimal tools, supplies, and mess; simple wire-work techniques, including how to make earring wires.
