Yesterday I had a great Advanced Workshop at my home with three ladies who had taken the Painting with Fire Workshop before. One of them drove 3.5 hours! I don't know how she did it. I'm sure Patricia was exhausted going home because we packed so much into the day.
Air conditioning was to have been already installed in my studio, but with the heat wave we've had, it's been all the crews could do to keep up with failed units. The a/c comes Tuesday, of course. So, we started off in my studio to do some of the metal work. We etched, we punched discs with the Swanstrom disc cutter, we dapped, we hydraulic die pressed, we roll milled ... We Were Hot! ... Physically!
Back to the air conditioning ... ahhh! Here are two of the ladies, whom I interrupted from their work for a photo.
Throughout the day, we worked with liquid enamel, millefiori, graphite on top of previously fired enamel, sgraffito, fused silver onto copper, stencils, painting with ceramic overglazes (china paints), and clear liquid enamel that had been tinted with ceramic pigments.
