Description


This casting technique is as easy as they come, but I assure you, the end result is clean and quite spectacular! For many years, Iíve tried to narrow down a casting technique that I felt comfortable with. Iíve never taken a class on this, Iím no expert on casting, but I have spent many hours and sleepless nights trying to figure out an easy way to make solder shapes. Iíve tried other casting methods and simply found them to be too difficult with undesirable results. Iím an Easy Peasy kind of Artist, I like working fast with beautiful results and I especially enjoy learning and teaching techniques that can be used in multiple ways in multiple projects.

In this class you will be making two projects.

  • 1-Solder Charm Leather Bracelet
  • 2-Large Copper Frame Pendant

In this Class you will learn:

  • The basics of using a Soldering iron and Butane torch
  • To cast small solder charms
  • To shape, patina and clean the charms
  • Create a leather bracelet
  • How to create a pendant using your castings
  • How to add texture to solder
