Pigments on Metal

results and considerations

15 intense hours with

Sonia, Valentina, Phoebe, Amani, Sana, Pace, Antonella,Enrica, Chiara and Francesca

as you can see we coloured not only metal

working with pigments, acrylics, cold enamel and resin on metal.

The first day we introduced to  colors,  thinners,  mediums, resins and waxes for finishing. We impressed decorations on the metal surface using the rolling mill  to adhere the pigments and started the colour applications.

The second day we experienced the melting of silver leaf on copper and iron, organic coatings, the preparation of colors in the kiln, the fusion of copper and plastic coatings applied to the final pigment.

pigments and color everywhere

The third day we continued to experiment with all the techniques, exploring new surface effects and  were able to finish some earrings and bracelets.
