This workshop is for students who have basic skills but want a concise understanding of how to complete professional quality pieces. Learn a variety of techniques (both hand & machine) to de-sprue, grind, file, sand, tumble, satin finish, texture and polish to bring your designs to life. "Clean up" can make or break a piece; a beautiful design can lose appeal if fine craftsmanship isn't applied, a plain design can be exquisite with attention to detail. Demystify the range of finishing options by hand (files, sandpaper) or machine (belt sander, polishing machine, tumbler and the incredible versatility of the flexible shaft). Depletion gilding, antiquing and texturing will also be discussed.
Skill Level: Basic 101 or equivalent
Lab Fee: $10
Materials: Bring castings, any unfinished pieces you might have, or use scrap metal to experiment with the techniques.
