Hi, what make pencils do you use for drawing on metal? I'ts beautiful.
This is how we Virgos organize a Prismacolor 150-pencil set and Prismacolor Art Stix set! Note that I pulled out the dividers in the drawers and used the plastic trays (with slight modifications) from the set to organize the pencils. If you don’t have the Art Stix, all but the metallics should fit in the drawers (or get the 4-drawer version). Here’s the link to the drawers: https://amzn.to/2Kp5eXn (affiliate link).
During the sheltering in place, I decided to add to my collection of metalsmithing tools. I had considered purchasing the Little Black Block before but now have the time to devote to trying it out. I use a lot of rivets in my work- cold connections with enamel components-and was intrigued by the set up that Deb had created. She is really the Queen of Rivets!
The metal cone with the dapped top is wonderful for getting under a domed surface-beats all the vises and tools I have hobbled together in the past. The material of the block is not metal so it does not rust and needs no maintenance-rust is a problem in Houston. The several indentations and the curved side can accommodate most any metal forming needed-and when used with a plastic hammer, non- marring. (and very QUIET). This is a great addition to my tool obsession.
Thank you for being one of the sponsors for this great project
Thank you Deb for sharing your talent with us. Thank you for teaching me more than drawing on metal. I love the workshop.
I just had the wonderful opportunity to take Deb Karash's Drawing on Metal Workshop at the Metal Arts Guild of GA. Deb's a great teacher, and her class covered numerous jewelry techniques.

Drawing on Metal and teaching students to do their very best work. "The creation and collection of jewelry, for me, is about intimacy. Something personal is expressed in the wearing of handmade jewelry."

Deb Karash

Deb Karash sees her work as a metaphor for human characteristics, the layers of the personality and the mystery of the spirit. The texture and colors blended to create each surface are like the subtle traits that we discover as we get to know each other. Con-nections: mechanical, metaphorical, and emotional, play a crucial role in her work and in her life as a maker. Fusing the intuitive nature of drawing and the technical skills of metalsmithing, Deb combines copper, silver, brass and colored pencil into wearable, portable works of art. Layers of colored pencil applied to a textured copper surface suspended over cool ster-ling bring each piece to life.

This is the tool you need when you are forming a big disc, riveting, or stamping. Enamelists are loving it. The flat side is wonderful for stamping bracelets on a non-marring surface.
