Mad Craft Skills “Mixed Media Jewelry – Combining Etched Glass, Stamped Leather and Metal” – including playing with Mad Craft Skills Printable Resist!

• Two session class – Saturday July 19 & Sunday July 20, 2014
• taught at CBS Coatings by Sandburg in Orange, CA

Mixed media is hot right now and in this class you will learn how to combine etched glass, leather and prefabricated metal bezels into fun wristbands and cuffs. First you’ll  etch dichroic glass components using etching cream and a variety of resists. Included also is an introduction to Carmen’s exciting new technique for etching artwork onto dichroic glass using a laser printer and Mad Craft Skills printable resist film as seen in Glass Patterns Quarterly. Once the glass is prepped for firing overnight in the kiln, it’s time to focus on the leather wristbands. You’ll learn how to stamp words and ornaments on leather, rubber stamp with inks, how to size the wristbands and how to add snaps.

The next day you’ll learn how fit the fired glass pieces into ready-made bezels and how to attach the bezels to the leather wristbands. You’ll walk out with an armful of art!

***Class consists of two sessions – the first session is seven hours long (9 am – 4 pm) and the second is three hours (10 am – 1pm). (Feel free to bring a bagged lunch.)

*** All levels welcome – $150 plus $45 materials fee
