New Mokume Gane - two project

 Two days, 9:30 - 5:00 - $210, kit included

Art Clay Silver has developed an incredible array of procedures for us to create the old Japanese mokume gane patterns with metal clay. In our two day workshop you will learn two of these techniques: Marbling in earrings and an Inlay  pendant. You will find that the contrasting colors of the metals are more defined than any other method shown today. Lorrene has developed her own version of the Inlay shown below.
