Lacca Povera on Porcelain with Dori Bolen
Learn the decorative technique of Découpure, a process of prepping, cutting and varnishing various surfaces. In Italy Découpure is referred to as Lacca Contrafatta or Lacca Povera, ‘poor man’s lacquer’.
Dori teaches the technique which imitates Asian lacquer and a process called japanning. Dori has developed her own approach to Découpure, combining modern technology with the time-honored process of alchemy.
In this class you will use a glazed porcelain vase as the base for your creations. Layer by layer using tissues, papers, paints and sealers, you will create a colorful unique surface for your vase that is sublime.
