So, yesterday (Saturday, July 13, 2013), I did demonstrations of torch fired enameling at a really cool gallery space here in Sacramento, VOX. It was there first ever Mini Maker Faire. I certain after how well yesterday went, there will be more.
This was my very scaled down, but totally workable enameling space. I had both of my torches, 18 enamels and a lot of pieces (copper blanks and iron filigree beads) to demonstrate with.
Here I am showing Luke some basic torch fired enameling.
Working a bead in the torch flame.
There were quite a few people who came by the event and got to paint with TJ Lev, sculpt clay with LaLa Ortiz and Rachel Young, make bots and color with Eric Sweiven, check out the awesome yarn bomb styling a of Rebel Threadz and she brought some cool break dancers with her.
These are all the pieces I enameled while demonstrating.
It was a good night and I look forward to doing it again.
