Enameling is the process of fusing powdered glass material to metal to give it a smooth colored glass coating. You can combine colors to create an ombre effect, add wire to the surface to add texture and design, and so much more! In this workshop you’ll learn the proper techniques of cutting, filing, cleaning and prepping the metal for the enameling process. You’ll then have the rest of the class to play with the enameling techniques I’ll teach you.You’ll leave with several beautiful pieces. Some people use a kiln to enamel, but as purchasing a kiln can be expensive, I like to teach the skill using a propane torch. It’s much more affordable to set up, and has some advantages over working with a kiln. If you have any further questions, or prefer to pay by phone, please call us at 207 941-8600. I look forward to seeing you!
