Class will combine two techniques of Electro Etching and Wood Inlay to bring beautiful and unique design elements to Inlay jewelry. Electro Etching is a process of putting a design into metal using a resist\mask of paint pen. Electro Etching can create interesting textured parts for building Inlay pieces.
