Enameling II - Christina
If you have some experience with Enameling and you want to expand your Enameling skills, this class might just be for you! This is not a very structured class, you’ll let me know what you would like to accomplish and we’ll take it from there. We’ll offer classics like Cloisonne and Champleve, besides many other techniques like Basse-Taille, Sgraffito, Paints, Liquid Enamels, Crackle and Separation Enamels. (Did you notice that you are also learning French and Italian at the same time?) You will get a deeper understanding of the uses and individual properties of transparent, opaque, liquid and Specialty Enamels. We’ll also address aspects of design challenges and color choices, and if time allows, we will experiment with torch firing. If there is enough interest, we could make simple Copper Settings for your Creations. But foremost: we’ll have fun doing the things we love to do!
