Add some colour to your work!  This 5-day intensive master class will cover the fundamentals of Champlevé, and cold enamel application using metal clay. We will explore the principals of design, including strategies and guidelines for successful Champlevé pieces.  Using two different methods of construction, you will create two or more unique pendants of your own designs.  Firing tips, as well as finishing techniques will be demonstrated.  Then the real fun begins!  You will bring your pieces to life by adding colour and dimension with paint, exploring various techniques for blending and shading.  Finally, learn about the specifics for applying protective resin, followed by the steps necessary to sand the resin flush and bring it back to a gorgeous glass-like shine.
