BUGS AND MAZES: SCULPTING & ENAMEL PAINTING
Margaret Zinzer $400 + 25 material fee (non-refundable)
Mon-Tue, August 29-30, 2011 (10:00am-5:00pm)
This workshop is for the intermediate (or advanced) beadmaker wanting to learn how to add another dimension of detail to their work. Margaret will guide students through the essentials for adding surface detail with vitreous enamel paints, while providing lessons on proper safety and handling of glass powders and enamels. Students will leave class understanding how to properly mix enamel for various applications; how to apply enamel paint to beads; how to correct mistakes; and, how to “fire” finished pieces. Margaret will also share with students her techniques for sculpting with razor blades and other shaping tools to create sculpturally detailed, but functional and wearable, beads. An enthusiasm for insects not required, but certainly helpful. Techniques for sculpting, painting, and firing work made without a mandrel (AKA the beadmaker’s security blanket) will also be included in class. Get ready for this fast paced and FUN workshop with Margaret Zinser!
