Using old rusted tools, hinges, metal pieces as molds, add rust color and texture to your handmade paper relief sculptures either as finished pieces or parts to assemble into a larger work. We will experiment with using rusted metal tools, hinges, and metal items as molds for our paper pulp to create cast paper with unique rust texture and color. We will also cover how to accelerate rust formation on iron and steel pieces.
Level: All levels welcome – no previous experience necessary.
Registration closes March 9, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, including pulp and other consumables.
