Non-traditional Mark Making for Enamel
Jessica Turrell’s Workshop at Conference April 2013
Jessica introduced her workshop by explaining that her methods were centred upon the careful sifting of enamel over a disturbed surface. A relief surface was created by either building up layers of enamel (using stencils) or by sifting over an altered surface (by etching, drilling or roll-printing the metal).
Jessica works mainly with black (opaque black 101) and white (soft white 0100), although other opaque colours can work well. Below are some methods she demonstrated.
