Event Details

Enameling is the process of fusing powdered glass to metal. Usually, a large kiln heated to at least 1500 degrees is used to achieve the bond. However, it is possible to use a torch-firing technique to achieve the same result — which students will learn in this class. First, we will design and saw a copper pendant, then apply several layers of enamel on both sides of the pendant to add color. The result is a smooth, shiny, colored surface. Students can also create a satin, matte, or textured finish using a variety of techniques and tools. The pendant can be worn using cotton cord.
