Would you love to be able to paint your designs in full colour, including metals and gemstones?
AND have a way to show your commission customers what their jewellery design will look like before you make it?
Then this course is for you!
Jewellery rendering is the process of creating a realistic representation of a piece of jewellery. It can be used as part of your design process, on your website or selling platform and to showcase a final design for a commission customer.
It is an exciting and visual way of designing and communicating your ideas.
In this course you will learn:
- The basic techniques used to paint metals including silver, yellow gold and platinum
- The basic techniques used to paint gemstones of different shapes and sizes including cabochons & small and large faceted stones
- How to paint different types of settings including pave settings, claw settings and bezel settings
- How to paint a gemstone necklace
- How to paint a gemstone ring
And don't worry if you don't think you're good at painting! On this course, you will get the templates for the ring and the necklace to print out and you can follow along with the course - it's a bit like painting by numbers!
What Will You Get?
- Ongoing access to comprehensive video lessons, guiding you through all the techniques, tips and tricks
- Downloadable course notes to work alongside the videos
- Downloadable templates of a ring and a necklace to work through the projects
- Full list of tools and stationery you need to create your designs (we love stationery!)
- Access to our supportive community of jewellers and tutors to help you at every stage of the process
- Access to the videos 24/7 - you can stop, pause, rewind and replay as much as you like
