Course Information

Description

Flat engraving is great, but sculpting is even greater! It’s considered the most luxurious treatment in hand engraving, producing three-dimensional leaves and scrolls. Not often seen on jewelry, sculpting is rich and beautiful, and wears better than flat and shading engraving. It’s especially good for high wear items like rings, but is suitable for any project.

Objectives

  • Students will learn background removal producing a deep relief
  • Making and texturing sculpting punches for modeling and sculpting
  • Finishing both smooth and textured designs
  • Learning which shapes of leaves and tendrils are more suitable and sculpting friendly

Class Project

Gentleman’s ring.

Prerequisites
