Barbara Lewis with Painting with Fire
Painting with Fire Ning which is a wonderful and supportive torch enameling community. I've met so many wonderful artists and great friends on that site. If you are remotely interested in torch fire enameling, I highly recommend getting her book and join the Ning group. She just moved and opened her new studio in St. Petersburg, Florida. Barbara teaches the immersion technique which is different from sifting enameling on top of copper. She is an incredibly supportive and talented artist who shares her knowledge. For those of you who can't make the trek to St. Pete or other venues she teaches, she is offering a 2nd e-course this summer. Check out the details about her e-course on her Painting with Fire Website! You can also follow her blog at http://paintingwithfireartwear.blogspot.com/
Here is a video of the immersion method that Barbara teaches.
I'm also taking Barbara's Surface Decoration for Enamel class while at B&B. I just couldn't resist learning how to make those cute enameled birdhouses!
I'm sooooo looking forward to meeting Barbara in person!
