Etching - John Fetvedt
Get in-depth knowledge and experience electro-etching metal using simple equipment that can easily and safely be set up and used in your home studio. The advantages of electro-etching include: no caustic or highly dangerous chemicals are used, and no dangerous gases or fumes are created during the process. The techniques and information learned in the class may be used to electro-etch copper, brass, bronze, nickel silver, and silver, depending on the electrolyte. The $150.00 supply fee for the class does not include any metal but does include all of other materials used in the class.

Lab Fee: $150.00
Estimated Materials Cost: $0+

Etching - Micah Kirby
Learn a design driven approach to Electro Etching. Gain knowledge using multiple masking techniques, oil-based marker, vinyl, P-n-P, and photosensitive paper as resists on metal. Acquire experience with two, non-caustic and non-gas producing electrolyte solution; salt and cupric nitrate.  Low voltage power supplies will be our power source to initiate etching. Copper and silver will be the main metals we use for this course (others can be used). It is recommended to use the internet to find images that interest you. Find simple designs and be careful of trademarked images. I will have some designs available to use.  Lab fee will include first project and consumables. All other metals in select shapes can be purchased or feel welcome to bring your own metal. (18GA or 20GA for bracelets, 20GA for pendants and 24GA. for earrings)
