Hello. I’m a new member and have been scouring the internet for help
but there doesn’t seem to be anything really. I love anodised
aluminium jewellery, I have bought a big pack of per anodized 0.8mm
and the dyes but can’t find anything to help with the basics. I have
"surface decoration" and “the jewellery encyclopedia” by Jinks
Mcgrath but they don’t cover working aluminium. Can anyone please
point me in the direction of any info, I just want to know the basics
like do I need to anneal alu and how, how to I etch aluminium, how to
form bracelets etc, i’d also would love to learn heat transfer
printing. I’m just lost and there are no books I can find to help.
Jane adams has decided not to write her book and linsdey mann said it
will be 2010 before hers is released on anodised aluminium.
I’d be incredibly grateful for any help.
