Enamel

In this workshop you will learn the basic principles of enamel. We take a look at the work of some contemporary designers and the use of colour in jewelry.

 

You learn how to prepare silver and copper. We will melt the enamel with a hand burner, so that you can get to know the melting process very good, and we will also work with the oven. We will find out how to combine soldering and enamel. You will learn how to texturize the enamel, how to built colours through different layers, apply leaf metals and some graphic techniques.
