Thursday, October 17th, Dwell Local Rochester, 6:00pm-8:00pm, Class Fee $50

Come paint with me and go home with a 12x16 canvas of birds and birches. Your friends won't believe what you did with a knife and a ballpoint pen! All supplies are included: $50.00

Transform Photos Into Enamel Keepsakes Class with Amy Johnson

Transform Photos Into Enamel Keepsakes Class with Amy Johnson

Saturday, November 9th, Dwell Local Zumbrota, 11am-2:30pm, Class Fee $65

Join Amy Johnson and turn a photograph of your choice into a long-lasting keepsake through the art of enamel.  You will leave the class with a ready-to-hang piece of art that you can treasure for many years.

You will learn basic enameling skills; how to properly clean the copper and prepare it for the enameling process.  How to sift powdered glass onto copper. Then with repeated firings, you will heat and melt the powdered glass by the use of a Map gas torch. You will then apply your photo decal.  After you apply the photo decal, class will take a break for 1 hour and 30 minutes to allow the decal to dry.  During this time you are welcome to go shopping or go for lunch in the beautiful downtown of Zumbrota.

In the second half of the class, you will fire the decal to your enameled piece using a kiln. In the firing process, the  image turns from a black and white photo to a vintage, warm 'sepia' photo, look. This antique vintage look is naturally imperfect and full of character. 

After firing your enameled piece you will finish off your project by mounting your enamel photo onto a piece of barn siding. 

Each student will need to email Amy Johnson an electronic image of a high resolution color or black & white photo no later than 2 days before the class. If you want to use an old image, just snap a copy with a phone or camera.  When you submit your photo please specify what size you want your photo decal.  Sizes are 3” by 3” or 4” by 3 “.  A copy of this photo will be made into a paper decal and will be provided the first session of the class.

Photos with good contrast work best.  You can use photos of any subject matter you like; wedding photographs, vintage family photos, pets, cars, holidays, memories, family members, aircraft, trains, guitars, bicycles, the opportunities are endless! Great unique gift idea for families, weddings, anniversaries 

Students should wear closed toe shoes, natural fiber clothing and have their hair tied back.
