Cloisonne is an ancient metal-working technique that involves soldering pieces of wire to the metal base and filling them up with glass enamels in various colors.
Faux cloisonne is made using polymer clay right in your own house, and does not require any complicated equipment or toxic materials.
The class includes step-by step hands-on demonstration of the basic technique and its variations, such as use of the metal leaf, mica powders, and various beads and crystals for additional visual effects. Special attention is paid to possible errors and ways to correct or avoid them.
The class also includes a comparison of various types of dimensional glazes and resin products available on the market.
