Colourful Aluminium Jewellery Kit (without tools)- includes half sheet of anodised aluminium
This is one of my favourite workshops, but with lockdown I decided to adapt it into a kit. I love experimenting with colours and textures and the end results are always stunning. Using anodised aluminium, you will experiment with different ways of colouring aluminium. You will use a variety of techniques ranging from ink dyes to rubber stamping, there's a How To booklet included, as well as access to an online video.
What's included in the price?
All the tools you need to make your own colourful aluminium jewellery. Full sheet of 0.5mm anodised aluminium, which is approx 20 pieces, which in turn will make lots of lovely jewellery. You can get multiple items out of one piece. You will probably only use about a 1/4 sheet at a time when colouring, so make sure you keep your remaining aluminium wrapped up in tissue paper and in an airtight container. 4x alcohol inks approx 3ml of each colour, let me know your preference on colour 6x alcohol markers, assorted Assorted rubber stamps 2x aluminium dyes, let me know which colours you would like Jewellers piercing saw and blades Jewellers benchpeg Hole punch Pliers Files Buff stick 1/2 rolling pin Jumprings and earring findings Please let me know which colours you would like - Alcohol ink colours are - Tangerine, teal, lettuce, rainforest green, baja blue, pink, passion purple, golden yellow, señorita magenta, sunbright yellow, chili pepper, shadow grey, mantilla black Aluminium Dyes - turquoise, yellow, gold, green, red, violet, orange, blue
