The half-tone mokume gane is an experimental approach to the mokume gane technique. If you will, you could call it a fusion of mokume gane and halftone print techniques. The result of this technique is very subtle and, in ideal cases, a transfer of the halftone image appears.
As with all mokume gane techniques this outcome is somewhat unpredictable, which is of course one of the characteristics of mokume gane.

This technique is easier to learn that it looks, but requires a precise and patient workflow.


Attendees will learn how to execute the technique successfully and how to make them their own. Tips and tricks how to make the workflow easier. Design is always a focus in my teaching, so it will be no exception in this presentation.
