Have you ever wondered how aluminum water bottles achieve such bright surface colors? Discover the rich textures and vibrant colors that aluminum can take on through the art and science of anodization! Anodizing is an electrolytic process used to alter the surface of metal. Even better, this process can be done in a small scale in your own studio! Explore a variety of techniques to color and pattern during the anodizing process, as well as tips and resources on how to recreate the process in your studio. You will leave with three samples utilizing different color and pattern techniques, as well as a handcrafted aluminum project, such as a keychain, created by you.
