Torch-fired enameling is fun, easy and affordable. Learn techniques of cutting, filing, cleaning and preparing metal for enameling. Using powdered enamels, experiment with sifting, stencils and sgraffito. Then use a torch to fuse the enamels onto the metal! Finished pieces can be worn as jewelry or larger pieces can be incorporated into multimedia and sculptural work.
