Painting with Fire Hosted by Barbara Lewis
A FREE Online Mixed Media Jewelry Webinar
Date: Thursday, December 15, 2011
Starting Time: 1:00 P.M. Eastern Time
About the Webinar:
Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry is the craft book of the year!
In this webinar, author Barbara Lewis introduces you to the art of creating torch-fired enamel jewelry – painting with fire – a process that combines beading and wire-working techniques melded with the intense beauty of enamel via a unique immersion firing method. You’ll learn about the history and evolution of the techniques involved in enameling, how torch-firing differs from any other firing technique, and a bit about recommended tools and metals. You’ll have a primer lesson on enameling beads and pendants, and Barbara will share some ideas for surface decoration, including how to apply the principles of the color wheel to enamel work. The PowerPoint presentation wraps up with a Q&A session during which you’ll have a chance to ask Barbara questions.
