Treasures of the Sea Pendant
Instructor: Terry Henry
Skill Levels: All
Learn copper electroforming and take home your very own electroformed pendant using “Treasures of the Sea” such as shells, fossils, metal, glass, rocks, and minerals. You will gain a clear understanding of how to electroform so you will be able to reproduce electroforming techniques at home! I will share electroforming techniques and methods and provide an opportunity to practice in class. Additionally you will receive “how to” documentation and techniques for framing, setting and how to protect components will be covered. Every student will electroform a pendant and understand tank set-up and maintenance, rectifier settings, and processes associated with electroforming and how it works. Students are encouraged to bring small treasures they wish to include in their projects. My methods are easy to understand and always effective! Class will break twice during the day to provide time for chemical bonding, and drying. Pick up and finish projects on Friday or by prior arrangement. If students are unable to return I will finish and mail their project for a small fee.
