I am looking for new approaches to copper tooling for my seventh graders.
In the past I have had the kids choose animals for the subject matter,
which of course results in great studies in texture. We usually use liver
of sulphur and steel wool to create the "antiqued" effect. I have also
tried incorporating the copper designs into mixed media pieces, using
permanent markers to add color.
I love working with copper, but I feel a little burnt out on my own
ideas. Any suggestions would be great.
