Do you like my work? For the first time ever, I will be teaching a 5 day immersive workshop IN PERSON at Pocosin Arts (in North Carolina) July 18-22, 2022. The workshop sold out in 3 days - I'm really looking forward to meeting all my new students!
Color Starter Kit
I have put together a Color Starter Kit for people who are ready to create traditional leaded cloisonné, but may be overwhelmed by the hundreds of color choices available. The kit is available at www.enamelartsupply.com I put this together initially for my upcoming Pocosin cloisonné workshop, but I really want to share this with everyone. It is the culmination of months of experimentation! My main goal with this kit is to keep cost low - it contains just the basic color families you will likely need to get started with traditional cloisonné.
Here is a link to download a PDF list of the color kit enamels, organized by color family: Color Kit List
