Contemporary Enameling Techniques: Gain a clear understand­ing of how to work with glass on metal in ways that relate to the stu­dent’s personal design concepts. A variety of enameling techniques such as cloisonné, champleve and liquid enamel will be demonstrated, with the primary focus on color. Create interesting surfaces through layer­ing transparent and opaque colors and special effects with foil, under glazes, over glazes, acrylic, watercolor enamels and traditional painting enam­els. Demonstrations will cover enameling on both flat and formed pieces. Some metal fabrication techniques as related to enameling will be covered.
