Are you looking for ways to add pops of color to your work besides enameling? Do you love enameling and are interested in learning another technique that produces pops of color while also offering more durability and flex?
In this class you will get to experiment with color and surface designs you can get from powder coat. Powder coating is a type of coating that is typically applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electro statically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin” around the piece/part being coated. In this class we will learn both how to spray the powder on our work and we will also go over sifting on powder, dipping into powder, and drawing on the powdered surfaces.
 
Brie will go over safety and various tips/tricks for working with these tools/materials. Using some pre-recorded videos and in person demos, Brie will go over how to set up, break down, and store powder coating at home. Students will work on creating samples squares by spraying, sifting, and dipping. Students will work on this in-between the two classes and will be encouraged to also design & create a finished powder coated pair of earrings, pin, or pendant.
