Combine photography with torch fired enamels to create a keepsake pendant featuring a favorite pet, a vacation memory, a family photo or other images you’d like to experiment with!
Students will have the opportunity to use their own photo or drawing to create an artistic pendant using photo-decals and vitreous enamel on copper. Students will learn how to sift the powdered glass enamels onto copper, and how to layer enamels, and how to use a small butane torch to fire the enamel onto their pendant. Students will also have the option to experiment with different transparent colored enamel and will have a variety of decal images to choose from in addition to their own personal photos. Students may email the instructor up to 3 images to use in class, and all images must be received at least 2 days before class. Email address will be provided after registering for the workshop.
