    in this class students will be tasked with cutting and refining nine pieces of stained glass in the assembly of a 3-D sculptural stained glass plant. The colors chosen are only limited by the colors available. When it comes to mimicking nature, perfection isn’t required in fact the more irregular the shapes the more realistic it looks. This course is not so dependent on how precise the piece is but rather to bolster soldering skills and using jigs to help get angles correct.

    Work Involved - (cutting, tracing, soldering, foiling edges, grinding, filing, framework)

    Tools & Materials - (Lead came/U channel, copper foil, 60/40 lead solder, soldering irons, various color and styles of stained glass, latex gloves, tracing sheets, pliers, glass cutters, T pins/flat nails, pin hammers, cutting oil, glass grinder, decorative chain, tinned wire, tinned jump rings, plastic water color brushes, small plastic paint cups, paper towels, flux, and patina)                                                          

    What to wear:  At RMM, you must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in all-natural fiber clothing (100% cotton), long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long hair must be tied back.

    Learn to make an elegant hand-crafted “Baron” Fountain Pen!

    The “Baron” fountain pen is trimmed with nibs, clips and other elements made out of the highest quality silver plating which gives each pen a distinguished look in addition to durability. Experience in turning would be helpful but is not required.  

    The fountain pen features an ultra-smooth threading removable cap that screws on to both the bottom and top of the pen. The Baron Fountain Pen not only is a great looking pen, but it is also light weight and one of the smoothest writing instruments available for everyday use and has a two-tone German made nib with an iridium tip. The artistic fittings are hand worked and polished and the solid metal external components add to the pens expensive and hardy feel.

    The Baron comes with both a siphon pump and blue ink cartridge. This hand-crafted pen will make a unique gift to others or yourself and will be completely one-of-a-kind!

    Each pen will be turned from beautiful exotic woods such as: King Cocobolo, Olivewood, Burmese Rosewood, Cherry Burl, Boxelder Burl, Red Mailee Burl, Bocote, Spalted Tamarind, Box Elder, etc. Students may choose silver plated or gold for the pen kit.

    In this class, students will be guided by a professional prop maker in the art of replicating objects using two-part silicon rubber molds. Building on the concepts of Mold Making I, this course focuses on creating more complex molds. Students will learn techniques to replicate small objects, such as chess pieces, through hands-on task and demonstrations

    Participants will gain skills in creating mold flask, mixing and pouring rubber, de-gassing, and duplicating pieces using materials like wax, silicone, and resin. This class is designed to teach the essential techniques for making multi-part molds, enabling students to produce duplicates just like those used in the movie industry for prop making

    Note: this class involves the mixing of reactive chemicals, and allergic reactions are a possibility with contact. All students will be required to wear eye protection and vinyl gloves in a well-ventilated area during class.

    Work involved –  building a flask “container”, mixing two part compounds, adding release agents, unmolding

    Tools/Materials Utilized- (two part rubber mold compound, sculpting clay, Duplo Lego blocks. Acrylic, Mold release spray, razor blades, wax, rubber, silicone, resin).

    What to wear:  At RMM, you must dress safely and appropriately.

    In this class students will be lead by a professional prop maker, and metal smith, in the in the process of lost wax/ ceramic shell casting. Students will learn the process of making a wax positive, then the steps necessary to create a ceramic silica mold capable of resisting extreme temperatures while maintaining the ability to pick up extreme detail! Students will learn wax burn out procedures, dipping molds in ceramic, casting bronze, and de-molding. On day one items to be cast in bronze will be created in wax, vented, and dipped several times in a ceramic slurry mixture to build up the necessary thickness required. (The following week will be available to students during normal open hours to complete dipping if not completed during class) On day two students will assist in burning out the wax in preparation of pouring bronze later that evening. This technique is widely used in industry and individuals with the knowledge and skill set are highly sought in the work force.

    Note: Though it is not required, this class strongly suggests the 101 mold-making course before attempting this class to build off of previously learned skills and to expedite workflow. It is recommended that the piece to be cast in metal has been previously made or cast in wax and this can be accomplished within the previous mold making class.

    Work involved –  building a flask “container”, mixing two part compounds, adding release agents, unmolding

    Tools/Materials Utilized- Mold release spray, razor blades, venting red wax, rubber molds. 5 kg of silicon bronze per student, casting furnace, 10 kg graphite crucible for bronze. Borax flux, skimmer, heat resistant safety gear, ceramic slurry, various grits of silica sand, zircon, burn out oven, large metal tray, modeling brown wax, electric eye burner, propane burner, sculpting wax tools, soldering iron, pots, figurine, crucible shank, safety equipment

    This is a more involved version of the panel I class, in panel II, students are challenged with more pieces! students will utilize a provided pattern to trace, then cut glass of their choice consisting of various colors and textures. When cutting stained glass it is critical to know how grain, color, and texture can affect how a finished piece of stained glass will look. Because of this, emphasis will focus on deciding what glass is best utilized and how certain color choices and application can give you different looks or effects. Following a brief tutorial, students will use their skills to cut, assemble, then solder the glass to complete a 8” x 8” pictorial sunrise scene using 16 pieces of cut glass. In this class lead came borders will be introduced, a traditional way of assembling stained glass with leaded channels! This class requires No prerequisites but it is suggested that a beginner class be taken before this one.

    Work Involved - (cutting, tracing, soldering, foiling edges, grinding, filing, framework)

    Tools & Materials - (Lead came/U channel, copper foil, 60/40 lead solder, soldering irons, various color and styles of stained glass, latex gloves, tracing sheets, pliers, glass cutters, T pins/flat nails, pin hammers, cutting oil, glass grinder, decorative chain, tinned wire, tinned jump rings, plastic water color brushes, small plastic paint cups, paper towels, flux, and patina)
