You will refresh the garments using watercolor enamels, underglaze pencils, overglaze china paints, and pen and ink. Participants will learn to render, draw, mix colors, make marks, and add details on enameled copper. During class you will complete a series of small enamel pieces for brooches, earrings, and pendants which match the outfit of your choice. No previous drawing and painting experience are required. Open to all skill levels, however basic enameling skills, such as sifting and firing, are helpful.
