Starting out with metal sheeting as the focus, foils and copper sheeting are explored. Next, Mary demonstrates how wire (in a variety of metals and gauges) can be used to create shapes, images, weaving, and baubles to personalize art quilts and fiber art. Forging, shaping, and texturing sheet metal and wire are covered, along with simple techniques for using a propane torch to add special effects, achieve color, and obtain distressed surfaces. Surface techniques are explored, and options for designing with metal are introduced. With simple fabric applications, what to do and what to avoid when incorporating metals and found items into art quilts are considered. The final focus is on finishing, with special consideration given to methods of attaching metal embellishments to fiber art.

Metal Embellishments video
This is a very informative video. The techniques are simple and are presented in a straightforward way. Mary showed me how and gave me the inspiration to try something new. I am excited to try working with metals and incorporating them in my fiber art. Review by Dawn Paoletti (Posted on 11/27/2011)
