Kristina Glick: The Alchemy of Copper Oxides: Two Enamels, Infinite Colors

Kimberly Geiser | ,

Posted By: Kimberly Geiser

This workshop will explore the dynamic interaction between white and clear liquid enamel, copper, and heat. The range of colors you can create using just these two enamels and the naturally occurring oxides in your metal will amaze you! We will start with enamel application (pouring, dipping, brushing) and sgraffito (creating patterns, texture or imagery by scratching through the enamel with sharp tools). Next, we will explore firing, adding layers, and firing again, which is where the magic really starts to happen. We will play with the contrast between enamel and bare metal as well as targeted firing to create a large range of unique colors and effects. This approach to enameling can be used to create small jewelry enamels or larger wall panels.
