In this class, participants will explore the art of repurposing by giving new life to discarded shells, crafting unique and personalized trinket dishes that capture the essence of coastal charm.
The first step of this artistic endeavor involves selecting the perfect oyster shell, each with its own unique texture and shape. As we delve into the intricacies of preparing the shells, participants will learn techniques to clean, polish, and prepare the surface, ensuring a pristine canvas for the upcoming transformation.
Next, the class will unfold the captivating history of Florida through vintage maps. Participants will be provided with carefully selected maps images, evoking the nostalgia of days gone by. With guidance, they will learn how to delicately affix the vintage map image onto the interior of the oyster shell, creating a harmonious blend of nature and history. The placement of the map becomes an integral part of the design, allowing participants to choose focal points that resonate with their personal stories or preferences.
To elevate the trinket dish to a new level of sophistication, the class will delve into the art of gilding. Gold leaf, with its luminous and luxurious qualities, will be carefully applied along the edges of the oyster shell, imparting a touch of opulence to the final creation. Participants will learn the delicate process of handling gold leaf, ensuring a seamless integration that adds a refined finishing touch to their trinket dish.
Throughout the class, participants will be encouraged to embrace their creativity and personalize their projects.
