Holi-Festival Enamel Painting

Instructor Steven James once again dazzles us with his creativity. His inspiration for this class came from the Holi-Festival, in which people throw pigment onto one another in celebration of sharing love. In this torch enameling class you'll learn to counter enamel, apply a bright white background, and then "throw" paint at the surface of your piece using enamel paints. How fun is that?! This class is suitable for all learning levels.

This class has a run time of 28 minutes.

I've ordered my liquid enamels and am anxious to try this project! Steven is an awesome teacher! His book is filled with incredible works of art and the directions are well written. You can tell he's an elementary teacher. Explicit directions are a must when it comes to enameling. I encourage purchasing his book!! Please have other online classes by Steven James!!

Having used a torch and kiln before for enameling, always fun to learn new techniques. Am curious though - do you not clean the edges of firescale?
Beaducation Replied:

Steven lets citric acid to do the work of removing firescale by placing the piece in a bath of water and Penny Brite. (step 3)

Thank you for such a great & well explained video on Torch Firing Liquid Enamels!
All areas covered, and accessible with minimum costs, which is very considerate.
I laughed so much when Steven shared passing out in grammar school, when he did not hear his teacher about breathing! Jumping in excitement. (I sure related to his experience!)
Then he reminded the viewer to breath!

Another great instructional Beaducation video....and I am going to check out his book too!

Cheers!
