Mason Stains & Enameling – $100.00
Instructor: Dawn Lombard
Level: All Levels.
Skills and techniques taught: Basic sifted enameling, etching and the technique of applying Mason Stain for surface design.
Description: It’s always fun to expand your enameling skills. In this class you will learn how to incorporate Mason Stains with your enamel work and take it to a whole new level. Mason Stains are NOT enamel – they are unleaded pigment that contain no glass. Together we will enamel a copper disc and etch it to create a ‘tooth.’ From there we will draw a design and paint on the stains and seal the stain once cooled. You will then learn how to create a tab setting for your new pendant masterpiece.
You WILL complete this project in class.
