Don’t miss this month’s MBMAG Speaker Series
We’ll be meeting at Cabrillo College Jewelry Room #3001
The event is free and open to the public
Presenters Angela Gleason and Lynn Guenther will talk about their work and how to make to make a meaningful life with creative practice.
Angela will talk about her work and her opening SCRAP exhibit. Lynn will show a short video about her teaching trip to Rosebud Reservation and talk a bit about other educational programs that she is involved in.
Lynn is collecting tools and donations to complete the “tool kit” she left for the students to use at the school on Rosebud Reservation. Below is what they are missing. You can bring any donations to the meeting.
Lynn says, “Fortunately some artists were very generous with materials last year, but the kids are using them and they could always use more if people want to donate any extra stuff they have. 20 or 18 gauge copper would be helpful, too, for bracelets.”
15-20 design stamps (expensive, $8 each!)
3 ball pein hammers
rawhide or Delrin hammer
3 more saws
3 bench pins
Sheet metal: Copper, brass, nickel
Stones and beads
Cash donations towards tools and materials are also welcome
Paul Kmetko: Stenciling on Enamel -Tips and Easy to Make Tool
Stencils are commonly used in enameling and they can be tricky to manipulate. Nothing is worse than carefully applying powder to your design and jostling the stencil whilst trying to remove it… Not only does it waste precious material, it can be very frustrating.
In addition just laying a stencil down on top of the work doesn’t guarantee a snug fit and powder will creep under boundary zones. In order to solve the problem I went back to my roots in screen printing and devised a solution that solves both problems at once. It started as a low tech device with a easily available clamp fixture that can be modified with minimal effort by almost anybody.
Paul will share this device and how to make a low-tech version of it, as well as giving tips on stenciling on enamel at this month’s MBMAG Speaker Series.
Paul is a silver smith, enamel artist and the owner of Seabright Metalworks in Santa Cruz.
