with Ken Oliver from Spellbinders. We cut copper, embossed copper, worked with some new materials, altered with paste and paint and generally had a great time and learned so much.
Here we are working with our copper plates.
We called it *Copper-Nado* because, yes, the copper was flyin'!
(not in a bad way - we were just busy)
The copper was painted with a JAX solution to patina.
Then embossed with Spellbinder embossing plates
after which we sanded to bring out the embossing.
We used a new-to-us material and embossed that to create even more texture.
I could have finished my project in class but chose not to
as I have all sorts of things I'd like to add once I get home.
I'll post once they're finished.
Let the layering begin!
PS: Hoping Ken comes back to For Keeps Sake soon!
