My name is Mikele and I am a professional piercer and body jewelry dealer. I will be demonstrating the metal anodizing processes.
This workshop, titled "Anodizing 101(take 2)", should have been subtitled "introduction to coloring of Titanium and Niobium"
Anodizing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anodizing) is an electrochemical process applied to metals, which thickens the natural oxide coating of certain metals.
We will focus on Titanium and the colors we can generate on it.
There will be a chance to practice anodizing on scrap materials, selecting color effects, rainbow patterns, and "anodized painting" on metal plates. After a little practice, you can make your own piece of anodized art, an example of which is shown above.
