Are you using some inventive, low-tech coloring techniques for your metal jewelry? Do you have a piece you’d love to show the world?
Well, now’s the time to LET YOUR COLORS FLY!
Lark Jewelry & Beading is publishing Heat, Color, Set & Decorate, an exciting new book by Mary Hettmansperger that teaches readers how to transform their metal designs with color using an array of easy techniques and common materials. Author of the books Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet, Mixed Metal Jewelry Workshop, and Fabulous Woven Jewelry, Mary is an accomplished mixed-media fiber and jewelry artist and teacher with a sharp imagination and a keen eye for cutting-edge coloring applications.
Heat, Color, Set & Decorate teaches coloring techniques that yield breathtaking results. For jewelry skill levels from beginner to advanced, Mary explains techniques that span from simple coloring with basic paints, pencils, and dips to more complex heat patinas, keum boo, and enameling. Twenty projects reinforce the technique lessons.
