This is a demo of embossing metal shapes to get an impression. She shows how to add rich coloring to them with lots of depth. Next she shows how to relief the metal so some of it shows through the color. And finally, she demonstrates melt art with a melting pot to give the metal an amazing shiny covering, or a thick raised matte finish

I teach this technique at a jewelry school Carol. First you scrub the copper till clean with fine steel wool. I use a butane torch, Mapp gas ok. Have a bowl of cold water ready. Then introduce to flame slowly move in and out of flame until you see color appear. Quench in cold water QUICKLY and color will stay. If everything turns kinda blue-silver, you have overheated it. Just quench and start over. When you have your scales done, be sure a spray them with a lacquer. It will hold the color…
