Terms in this set (36)
(metal) A material used to smooth, machine or sometimes roughen another softer material. Abrasives are used to scrape away the irregularities in a surface. ex. disc, belt, sandblaster, and sandpaper, properly called coated stock.
(metal) A lightweight, silver-colored metal used occasionally by metal artists. In a process called anodizing, aluminum is given a porous coating that can be colored with dye.
(metal) Refering to the process of dyeing an aluminum surface by coating the metal with a film of aluminum oxide while in an acid bath. The metal is next cleaned and immersed in organic dye, allowing the oxide film to absorb the dye. The surface is then cleaned a final time and sealed with lanolin.
A double-sided sheet metal, which is composed of two different types of metal that have been rolled and fused together.
An alloy of copper and tin. Bronze is used extensively in casting. The term bronze can also refer to brass that is brown in color.
Refers to the stage in metal working of creating a high polish. In this process, gentle abrasives are rubbed against metal to smooth away small surface irregularities. Buffing can be accomplished with machines or hand tools.
An enameling technique, or an object made by such a process, where hallowed-out areas are created in the surface of a metal object and then filled with colored enamel. The piece is then fired and when cool, polished.
An enameling technique
or an object made by such a process, where hallowed-out areas are created in the surface of a metal object and then filled with colored enamel. The piece is then fired and when cool, polished.
An enameling process or works produced by such process in which the colors are separated by thin metal ribbons or wires to create a pattern.
Refers to the process of joining together two pieces of metal without the use of heat. Rivets are an example of a cold connection.
A metal known for its malleability, low cost, and wide range of patinas.
Refers to steel consisting of wavy patterns in its finish. Damascus steel is created by welding together pieces of steel, then folding the piece onto itself, and hammering that piece flat. The process is repeated until the desired line patterns have been achieved.
Refers to the creation of an object by electrically depositing metal on a master form of wax. After the wax is removed, a metal shell remains.
A transparent or opaque glaze that melts lower than copper, silver or gold on which enamel is used as the decorative finish.
Assembling, forming, manufacturing, or otherwise constructing metal.
A thin, flexible sheet of metal, usually aluminum, copper, gold, silver, or tin.
A technique in which metal is shaped by hammering, usually while at red or white heat.
The technique of joining metals through melting.
An element used for its ability to shine, resist corrosion, and join. Pure gold is usually alloyed with other metals, often silver and copper to create a more durable metal.
Referring to alloys widely used in Japan, such as shibuishi, kuromido and shakudo. These copper-based alloys are known for their ability to take striking patina colors.
Metal, often gold or silver, that is beaten or rolled out to extreme thinness for use in gilding.
A casting technique in which a carved wax model is placed in a container that is then filled with plaster. After the plaster hardens, the container is fired to melt the wax. The result is a plaster mold suitable for casting metal or plastic.
A cold-process method of shaping material by turning, grinding or cutting
A hammer-shaped tool of a material that will not seriously mark metal. Mallets are made of plastic, leather, wood, paper and horn.
The process of creating exact replicas of designs, typically in wax, for reproduction.
An alloy of copper, zinc and nickel, formerly called "German silver."
The process of chemical alteration that occurs when certain minerals come into contact with oxygen. The result is a darkening or coloring of the metal. This process can be accelerated or controlled for effect.
A plastic which may be bonded to metal or cast in molds.
A surface coloring, usually brown or green, produced by the oxidation of bronze, copper or other metal. Patinas occur naturally and are also produced artificially for decorative effect.
A casting method in which moistened sand is packed against a model to make a mold.
A method of creating the centrifugal force needed to create precise castings in some metals.
An alloy of a specific melting point and surface tension used to join metals.
An alloy of iron and carbon.
Joining two or more pieces of metal by melting together
Shaped by beating or hammering, often elaborately, for decorative effect.
