Torch Fired, Watercolor Glass Enameling on Copper
In this class, you will cut shapes from copper sheet metal and forge them into a necklace or ornament. You will learn the 3 stages of the enameling process and use a substrate to draw a design on the copper. You can create your own design to draw or choose from a variety of ideas I’ll share in class. Next, you’ll layer the enamel to create the watercolor look and use a torch to fire the glass from a powder to a solid glass-enameled surface. Wear your newly created art jewelry home.

Julie Lukosaitis is the owner of Beadazzled By Julz, a mobile glass art studio. She travels to folk art schools and teaches the ancient arts of torch fired glass bead making, glass enameling and glass blown ornaments. Torch fired glass art is unique, and like most arts the creativity is endless. Watching glass transition from a solid to a liquid and adding layers and techniques is extremely fun but it can be challenging at times. She enjoys sharing her glass art skills and meeting creative fun people.
