Go into depth with enamel on steel at our Bend, Oregon Studio.
I am excited to offer this 5 day workshop to up to 5 participants who want to spend some extra focused time with this craft. We will begin by studying many samples, and learning what is possible with each technique. Participants will have 5 days to develop work while creating their choice of Panel, Wall Relief or 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 enamel spray and sgraffito applications, Watercolor Enamels, Acrylic Enamels, and Enamel Crayons. Experiment with layering and highlighting using various tools for mark-making, effects and textures. The possibilities will expand your horizons!
What students can expect to complete:
Choice of Sculpture, Wall Relief or large Panel
four 2×2 practice panels
one 4×4 panel
Jewelry Elements: Choice of Pendant, Brooch or Pair of Earrings, (or a combo if time permits)
