This workshop will feature a number of somewhat unusual enameling techniques that significantly expand the expressive potential of enameling and are easily adaptable to many purposes. Class will begin with a brief overview of basic conventional painted enamel techniques followed by an exploration of firing graphite drawings into enamel, incorporating reflective glass beads to create unexpected optical effects, utilizing synthetic aventurine (goldstone) to produce enamels which sparkle and the application of extremely delicate sgrafitto drawings in gold leaf. Join Central Washington University Professor Keith Lewis to explore these enameling oddities. Enameling Basics I or equivalent required.
