Course Information

Description

Achieve dramatic effects with full relief carving, fine line shading and soft metal inlay. The course material covers multiple techniques to achieve three-dimensional work, beautiful scrolls, advanced inlay, leaves, and sculpted steel. These techniques work well with knives, jewelry, bits and spurs, and firearms. Three-dimensional styled work brings depth to a workpiece–a great way to make work stand out from the competition.

Objectives

  • Quality line shading
  • Make and use of special tools and gravers
  • Gold wire inlay
  • Shadowing to create depth without having to do background removal
  • Sculpted steel
  • Resist etching on Damascus project (as time allows)
