Day 3 Heavy Metal Play Day

The saturday metal class was fantastic! Walnut Hollow recently changed the size of their metal squares from 4″ x 4″ to 5″x 5 3/4″, and this larger size really opened up the creative potential for embossing. 
My students had so much fun, creating fantastic designs, check out all their beautiful work (click on the photos for big images)
The texture and depth that can be achieved with the copper is amazing.
One student found this great little embossed aluminum metal box in the Artistic Artifacts booth at lunch and colored it with alcohol inks.

It was such a wonderful surprise to have my friend Holly Holloway and her mom in my class too.

For anyone wanting to take this class, I’ll be teaching it in Houston at International Quilt Festival on Saturday November 3 and this weekend in Mineral Point, WI at Shake Rag Alley.

I love hearing from my blog visitors
