Hot Bluing Steel by Cindy Pope

  

Artist, Instructor and Silhouette Curio expert, Cindy Pope started out with Precious Metal Clay Rio certification and metalsmithing classes and is one of Hadar Jacobson’s first Cadre of Base Metal Accredited teachers.

In this video, Cindy Pope demonstrates how to hot blue steel. This technique darkens the steel without using chemicals. For this particular piece, it also has bronze on it, which she finishes by giving a high polish. We recommend sealing hot blued steel with Renaissance Wax.

Note: Cindy is hot bluing fired Hadar's Steel Clay.
