Keum-boo is the ancient Korean technique of applying 24K or 23.5K heavy gold foil on silver. In this class you will create silver metal clay pieces suitable for this process and then after firing them, apply gold foil using this technique. I find the results amazingly beautiful, especially with a Liver of Sulfur patina applied. You should have taken a class or have some experience with metal clay to take this class. (The price of gold foil is additional and varies according to the gold market. You’ll have the option of purchasing a full or partial sheet, but about $22 in gold should be sufficient.)
