Enameling Electroformed  Organics

Prerequisite:  Electroformed Organics

Class Fee TBA

 

This class will meet on the following days: TBA

 

Day 1 – Preparing and Processing Organics
Day 2 – The next steps
Day 3 – Class Follow up Q&A

This class shares a technique I have been working on for a while. Once a component is electroformed it can be enameled like any copper shape. The only difference between an electroformed organic component and a stamped or cut copper shape is the detail preserved within the element. I will share the nuances of enameling electroformed leaves, flowers and shells. Come join me for this exciting new class!
