Description: You will cut, file and sand niobium sheet to prepare for anodizing. Create a hinge from your niobium and rivet it to the cut shapes. Bath anodizing is used to give some of your pieces a solid background. Hammer a texture in others and anodize using the “painting with sandpaper” technique. Create wire dangles with niobium wire.
