In this workshop students will discover modern Limoges painting techniques using overglaze paints and ink. The instructor will demystify how to work with color, producing tones and shades to create realistic images of flowers, bees, and butterflies. Inspired by nature, the class will explore color combinations and monochromatic color schemes on copper forms. Participants will complete a series of small pieces during this workshop. Open to all skill levels, however basic enameling skills, such as sifting and firing, will be helpful.
