Saturday will consist of three projects which involve many enameling procedures and materials which will give you a strong grounding in basic enameling. Procedures include sifting, firing, wet inlay, application of fine silver foil, mixing colors by layering, stencil, liquid brushable enamel, sgraffito, and a simple cloisonne using fine silver wire on fine silver tooling sheet.
If you have taken the "Intro to Enameling Workshop" before, the second day (Sunday) will have new and different procedures and techniques to learn.
Sunday will consist of learning about painting on enamel materials (ceramic pigments, water colors, overglaze painting colors, acrylic enamels, enamel marking pens, enamel marking crayons, oils and mediums used, and Carefree Lusters. The day will also cover many procedures - transferring an image/cartoon, creating texture, painting procedures, color mixing, firing, and transparent clear cover coats. The second project incorporates embossing thin copper, enamel application and firing with a torch. Time permitting, three other procedures will be demonstraated, dry brush sgraffito, droping and coating a three dimensional shape i.e. a copper bowl or a seamless copper bead. By the end of
each workshop day, you should have a good idea as to what you wish to
accomplish with enamel.
All tools and materials are
supplied. Participants are only expected to bring a brown bag
lunch, an open mind, and a pair of eager hands. There are fast
food restaurants close by, if you prefer.
