A white base enamel layer serves as a canvas, on which painting and texturing with fine ground painting enamel can be experienced. The range of enamel painting can be from simple sketching, line drawing, texturing and shading up to painting of complex pictures. Different ways of enamel painting will be shown and discussed, up to the participants needs, to develop further on their own.

This workshop will give you the overview over different enamel paints. You will see demonstrations, receive instruction, hands-on practice and guidance to work on copper and steel. You will learn to transfer the drafts to your metal pieces, paint in layers, and other various techniques such as using stencils, sgraffito, and finding ways to create textures.

During the workshop you will complete 3-4 painting projects. At any step of the workshop it will be discussed which particular technique is useful to achieve a specific result.

Who is it for?

The workshop suits for people who already have basic experience with enameling and want to add another touch to their work.

Beginners and non-jewellers are highly recommended to take our 1-day course Introduction to Enameling before taking this workshop.
