Flame Painting

with Janet Pace

at William Holland

Class Description

Copper is a color reactive metal. In this class, we will use a tiny open torch flame to create precise placement of patterns and colors, mastering the color progression caused by changes in flame temperature. No paint or chemicals are involved; only heat. It’s fascinating to watch the different colors develop!

 

We will begin with copper stampings and progress to fabricating original pieces of jewelry using cold connections and soldering techniques. Tools will be available for students’ use in class, but you are encouraged to bring your own favorite tools as well. Eye protection and closed toe shoes are required. Lab fee includes detailed full color instructions, use of instructor’s specialized tools, solder, sealers, and other consumables. Supply fee includes some sheet copper, stampings, wire, and bracelet blank. Students can expect to complete several jewelry items during the week and are welcome to bring their own solid copper items to work on.
