Robert Dancik returns to Metalwerx to teach a workshop in Faux Bone
and PMC. This is a perfect introductory workshop for those wishing to
learn more about PMC and Faux Bone, an amazing new material which
carves and polishes like ivory, but is non-toxic and completely safe.
If you don't want to drive with the masses over the Memorial Day
Weekend, but rather enjoy a relaxing and fun workshop playing with
some new material, this is your chance.
In this very hands-on workshop, we will explore Faux Bone, a new,
friendly and extremely versatile material. Faux Bone? can be cut, and
carved, sawn and sanded. It can be filed, hammered, polished,
drilled, stamped, inlayed, dyed, and painted. It can look like ivory,
have the patina of aged ceramic, or be polished to a pure white. You
can heat and bend it with nothing more than a small embossing
heat-gun. It is so strong you can rivet on it, die form right into
it, or hammer metal around it. Faux Bone? is perfect for artwork as
varied as jewelry and book making, sculpture, or printmaking.
