Modern design style meets traditional metal skills in a workshop guide that ensures excellent results and teaches all the basics of materials, equipment, and techniques.  These practical home and garden d#65533;cor projects, which range from cards to sculptures, use an astounding array of metal types in sheets, mesh, and wire--and even coat hangers, paper clips, and other found metal objects.  While making vases, votives, tin ceiling tiles, and mesh purses, crafters will learn how to work with brass, tin, chicken wire, bouillon, aluminum, and copper pipe, and confidently handle the tools needed to cut, emboss, pierce, sand, polish, and shape the metal. Decorative techniques include painting, decoupage, and patina recipes to create a natural-looking sheen.
