|I have this book and it IS my go to book on torch firing.|
|Before I get into the details of a great giveaway, I want to announce that we've added to our website another size option for our enamels! We now have one ounce enamel packets available at our website. This is something we've been wanting to do for some time and decided we finally had the manpower to do it!|
|Now for some fun stuff! Today's my day for a giveaway through Jewelry Artists Network. You have to join the facebook group in order to participate ... a group that you'll enjoy! I promise! It's a great resource! The winner will have a choice of one of my new DVD's just released by North Light. They're brand new! All I ask is that you become a follower of my blog and leave a comment at the blog post for the giveaway. This comment will give me your name, which will be entered into a random drawing. On New Year's Day, a winner will be selected and I'll announce it at my blog! |
I love myself some techniques and couldn't help it when Barb's email arrived from Painting with Fire Studio. If you haven't tried torch fired enamels you need to. This is the perfect time to try them - yes, you'll be hooked. It's get fun and they're beautiful. You can see some recently enameled beads at Andrew Thornton's site and if you google enameled beads you won't believe the amount of sites you can get. I learned this technique from JJ at a class at Brighton Beads but it was Barb who took it global and main stream. Enamels are ancient but were not widely used by everyone because the process, for all intents and purposes, was kind of mystic and complicated. Barb seemed to grasp that "need for speed" and turned it into a process for everyone and anyone. Thanks Ms. Lewis for seeing a need and filling it with some great techniques and art projects.
Now please note I took these images from Barb's email....no doubt they are the property of Painting with Fire Studio and North Light Books but I wanted to share the giveaway with everyone and point out the great work Barb is doing in this field. I've made as much as I can interactive so you can get to the sites that you will want to use....quickly now....go sign up.
