Course on jewelry in acrylic glass
Working with Plexiglass, colors and resins
teacher: Marzia Rossi
Plexiglass is the most transparent material that you can find, it’s easy to buy it opaque and in different colors, but in this course we start from its extraordinary, amazing transparency. We will experiment different ways to treat the surface, drawing, dig, obtain a volume, cut, bend a shape. We will apply color in shades and strong lines.
The first part starts with a short presentation of materials in use during the course (Plexiglass, resin glues, colors) with characteristics and main differences.
The course continues by cutting many shapes in different thicknesses, sperimenting surface treatments; create texture or drawings, impress decorative elements by heating, apply colors. Create volumes by gluing several layers or bending by heat a shape, incorporate resin or metal elements, experiment with resin and Plaxiglass the process of bending a shape by heat.
Choose at the end one or more try outs and transforme them in a piece of jewel.
This course is for both beginners and those who already have experience in jewellery making.
Tools and non-precious materials as well as handouts on the course are supplied by the school.
