Photo Enameling with Erin Proctor
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! Use your own photo or drawing to create an artistic pendant using photo-decals and vitreous enamel on copper.
Learn how to sift powdered glass enamels onto copper, how to layer enamels, and how to use a small butane torch to fire the enamel onto a pendant. Students are given the option to experiment with different types of 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 2 images to use in class; all images must be received at least 2 days before class. Email address will be provided after registering for the workshop.
