INTRO TO ENAMELING WORKSHOP

INSTRUCTOR: TOM ELLIS

WEEKEND WORKSHOPS DATES:

Saturday and Sunday - Cost: $95.00 per person per day, which includes all materials

Sign up for one or both days - you pick - Saturday and/or Sunday.

Time: 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM both days

We will start with the basics and have you enameling within 15 minutes. You will quickly move on to more advanced procedures and selected techniques on both days. 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.

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 demonstrated, dry brush sgraffito, dropping 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 an open mind, and a pair of eager hands.
