About the event
April 29-30 and May 1, 2022 - 9:00 am-5:00 pm daily
From making sepia tones to colored decals, this workshop explores several ways to create and fire them. Beyond the basic decal element, you will embellish and transform the decal with a variety of materials and techniques.
This workshop will cover 4 types of decals:
- Sepia (brown) decals
- High contrast commercial black and white
- Commercial color decals
- Single color decals made with opaque enamels
After creating the decals, we will experiment with several techniques to enhance the basic decal. I will be bringing lots of sepia decals that I have made and will also bring commercial decals from several sources. For the sepia decals, if you are interested in having your own designs/images transferred to decal paper ahead of time, instructions for how to prepare and send are included.Contact the artist for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop is limited to 8 students.
