Enamel on Steel & Granular Spray – 4 day Fall Workshop – Nov 7-10, 2019

November 7, 2019 @ 10:00 am - November 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

Go into depth with enamel on steel at our Bend, Oregon Studio.

Alisa Looney is thrilled to offer this 4-day workshop to up to 5 participants who want to spend focused time with this craft.  We will begin by studying many samples, and learning what is possible with each technique. Participants will have 4 days to develop work while creating a Wall Relief Sculpture, as well as test pieces and jewelry.

You will learn to cut and shape the steel, how to prepare the surface for enameling, apply the ground coat and fire in the kiln. Next you will add the white granular spray layer and use sgraffito methods to achieve fine detail with ease and control when drawing images, textures and marks in glass, while also learning appropriate kiln-firing temps and techniques. Add depth and color with Liquid Form Enamels, Watercolor Enamels and Enamel Crayons. Experiment with layering and highlighting using various tools for mark-making, effects and textures. These techniques open avenues for creating surface treatments that truly allow for the freedom to be expressive with a variance in line quality, so you can work in virtually any style!

There are wonderful places to stay close to our studio in nearby in Sun River. Many fun outdoor adventures await during your down time: hiking, biking, boating, birding and nature sketching to name a few.

Call or email to check for space available, and for more details on this immersion into enameling on steel.     alisa@alooney.com
