This class is organized by the Center for Enamel Art and co-hosted by Silvera Jewelry School. Registration is through the Center's website.
In this information packed 2 day class, learn some exciting new advances in markmaking for enamelists. The easy and inexpensive screen process is an exciting new addition to augment traditional enameling techniques.
Each participant will build a light box out of a simple packing box and a few other parts. A supply list will be included.
The size of the screen is 8 ½ x 11 with a 110 DPI opening. Many small designs can be fitted on one sheet or a large pattern can fill the entire page. Strong contrasting black and white images work the best with the grey tones eliminated. Copyright free material like Dover clip art work well for the screen designs.
Once the screens are exposed, the fun begins. There are so many ways to use this process to wrap imagery, do elaborate stencils, incorporate fonts—so much more!
This process is appropriate for small scale jewelry work along with panels and sculptural scale objects. These screens can be used to directly screen on flat forms but also are utilized to create decals that can be adhered to dimensional forms.
Jan brings a wealth of enamel information that has been refined from her 25 years of teaching enamels at the Museum of Fine Arts teaching school-the Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas.
