Explore two methods of adding real gold to your PMC designs in this action-packed workshop! In the morning, we'll discuss what designs are suitable for the addition of gold; then we'll design and complete a few sample projects so we can fire them during lunch. After lunch, we'll learn about Keum Boo (pronounced k**-boo) the ancient Korean Method of fusing actual gold (in the form of foil) to silver - and how it relates to PMC. You’ll discover that adding Keum Boo to your metal clay isn’t nearly as complicated as people would have you think! And, you'll have a chance to apply Keum Boo to your sample designs. Then we’ll explore the process of adding Aura 22 (real 22K gold) to our designs -including unique techniques that aren't typically a part of introductory Aura 22 instruction! Next we'll learn how to torch fire Aura 22 - and get a chance to apply what we've learned to our pieces.
