Martin Saban-Smith: Turning Artistic Burrs – 15th July 2:00pm


Join Martin Saban-Smith in his Master Class on turning a burr piece into an artistic sculptural form like the one shown here using metal reactive paints.

He’ll show you how he chucks the piece, turns the front, decides on where and how to put the rings. In the second half of the presentation, he’ll go through his method of applying the reactive paint to an ancient look and feel to the piece using a pre-prepared piece. Finally, he’ll show the metal leafing process.

Martin is primarily known on YouTube for his colouring work, but has chosen to demonstrate his work with the metal paints for his Master Class which is limited to 50 attendees.

*Martin is waiving his fee for his Master Class and handing it to the ongoing UKIWS project.
