A weekend of learning

My Friend Rachel from Two Dog Pond (check out her blog) and I signed up for a Enameling class this last weekend so I could incorporate it with my PMC
All of the pieces at class was done on copper

This is the first piece we did to learn how to use the torch and the different textures we can create.

second piece that looks ok but the picture does not show the colors real well.

After the first day of class I stayed over at Rachel's wonderful country retreat home and we played that evening....
Rachel does wonderful pieces of Jewelry and I have always wanted to learn how to do glass in a kiln
These are the pieces I did, now I have to incorporate them in my PMC....
After placing our pieces in the kiln I got to sit on there deck and look out to the peaceful pond and watch the blue bird on the blue bird house
How cool is that!

Next day at class
We were able to fly on our own and this is what I did
This piece I learned how to wet pack the enamel (the sun)
it is hard to see the color changes in the photo
it is a brown background, fire red in lower rt corner, at an angle to the center and then the white splatter look.

The fun part is I am going back to the Two Dog Pond (check out her Web site) to teach a 2 day PMC class in 3 days
Check Out Rachel's Etsy site also.


  1. You are waaaayyyy tooo kind! It was a fun class last weekend, but I'm really really looking forward to learning PMC from the master!

  2. That looks like it was a TON of fun! Ordering PMC supplies tomorrow -- wish I could be at your class -- that would be MUCH more fun than painting the caboose!

  3. looks like you guys had so much fun! someday...someday soon i hope...i want to come play with you guys....and sit...sit on the deck too. that too. yes.
