Resinate Cloisonné

Fri 28 - Sat 29 Jun

This course is aimed at the intermediate/advanced level metal clay enthusiast.

Working entirely in Art Clay Silver, this technique begins by creating a master frame for the overall design that has a backing with a deep recess. Art Clay Silver Paper Type Long and Paper Type Plus + is cut into narrow strips which are then used to create the intricate pattern or design within the frame. After firing, inks or patinas are used to paint and add colour to the recesses. They are then filled with UV resin and cured to a hard finish before being polished and finished to a high shine. A bail is created to hang the finished piece. There are options to add a bezel set gemstone and an intricate twisted dangle.

Included in the course:-

  • 20g Art Clay Silver 999
  • Thin Teflon sheet
  • 2 x strips of Art Clay Paper Type Long
  • Use of inks
  • Resin
  • Resin applicator
  • A selection of sanding grits
