Torch Fired Aura 22 with Chris Darway: Applying Gold to Fine Silver, Sterling and Copper
Instructor: Visiting Artist, Chris Darway
Date: Saturday September 8th, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Aura 22 was developed to be used on fine silver metal clay as an alternative/supplement to Keum-Bo. This new method allows us to apply Aura 22 to not only fine silver but sterling and copper. Instead of a kiln we’ll use a torch. Once fired the material can be rolled, fold formed, soldered on, drilled and etched. Aura 22 fired pieces are perfect for enameling.
Join us for this one day introduction to Aura 22 Gold.
Materials cost is included with tuition.
1) One gram package of Aura 22, a liquid gold material, which is 91.6% pure gold and 8.4% fine silver. This precious metal is able to fuse to silver, copper and brass at low temperatures, creating in a layer of gold considerably thicker than that achieved by electroplating. The result is a deep golden color that is hard wearing.
2) Wetting solution
3) Two small brushes for application
VALUE OF THE KIT IS APPROXIMATELY $90
