Discover the endless possibilities for using low-tech metal applications to alter and embellish the surfaces of all types of artwork—from mixed-media wall art and collage to book arts, quilts, and other fiber art. After whetting our appetites with an introduction to metal embellishments on her Quilting Arts Workshop™, “Metal Embellishments: Incorporating Wire, Foil, Metal Sheeting, & More into Fiber Art,” in this DVD, Mary delves even further into specific materials and techniques. Patinas, shaping, and forging are all covered. Discover unique manipulations for wire, including looping and twining. Learn to attach altered metals to a variety of surfaces to add depth, interest, and color to your artwork.
