Beyond the Basics: Drawing Challenges with Susan Rubin and Marjorie Leggitt

Let’s draw the tough stuff!  After all this practice, there are still things that stump you. That shadow in the interior of your subject seems almost impossible. Those insect wings that reflect light and show substance behind are so hard to capture. From transparency to translucency, from folds to crinkles, from spikes to soft, we’ll meet drawing difficulties head on.

Flush Setting Workshop with Randy Burns

Learn to flush set round stones into a thick sheet of silver. In flush settings, the top surface of the gemstone and the surrounding metal are both on the same plane. … In other words, the gem is “flush” with the surface of the metal. There are no prongs or bezel settings in the flush setting style. Some experience in metalsmithing required.
