All That Glitters: Using Patterned/Embossed/Burnt Gold Foil in Enamel
Time & Location
About the Event
In this workshop, students will learn a cost-effective way to incorporate gold into enamel projects by capturing gold foil under and over glass. Jan will demonstrate three specific techniques using a single sheet of Japanese gold foil. Many samples will be shown, along with finished projects.
Jan’s goal is to provide students with a better understanding of the ways in which gold foil can be manipulated to create exciting, high-impact textures and patterns (While silver foil can be used, the results will not be as crisp, because of the difference in the foil’s thickness.)
