Enameling Plique-à-Jour – A pierced approach

with Cheryl Eve Acosta 
Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
 
August 22 & 29, 2021 | 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET
 
Plique-à-jour means applied daylight. It’s the only enameling technique that uses transparent glass without a backing creating a stain glass window effect! In this workshop, you will learn how to create your first plique-à-jour piece using the pierced approach in sterling silver, fine silver, or copper. We will explore how to design a pierced metal pattern and discuss the importance of designing a framework that will hold kiln enamel glass in place using temporary backings over a flat surface. We will cover options for three-dimensional objects using surface tension from this wet packing technique.  Students will learn about building color layers to create a watercolor effect, mixing colors and achieving clear enamel surface.  We will discuss finishes between firings, surface finishes on flat, three-dimensional, textured surfaces and common enameling failures. Torch firing techniques will be discussed as an alternative option.
