Welcome to All Things Pewter Art, Metal Embossing, Paverpol and Mixed Media
Esmeric Art Offers Metal Embossing Supplies and Workshops in Pewter Art, Paverpol and Mixed Media
Pewter Art, known as Metal Embossing in Northern Americas, Repujado in Spanish, and Repoussé in French and most other European languages, is an ancient art form dating as far back as 1450 B.C.
Egyptians used Pewter Art or Metal Embossing in ancient times, and later the Romans to decorate metal tableware. Europeans used it from the Middle Ages until glass and pottery development improved in the 18th and 19th centuries.
For the most part, modern-day pewter art is primarily used for decorative purposes and done on thin sheets of malleable pewter.
Paverpol is a non-toxic, eco-friendly textile hardener best used with natural fibers like cotton, leather, and more. Primarily used for sculpture, it is a versatile product.
To complete a project or an artwork, one will combine a variety of mediums. With your experimenting, ideas, and visions, the sky is the limit to mixed media; almost everything goes.
I am so happy to have met and attended many workshops @ Esmeric Mixed Media & Pewter Art. Esme is a talented mixed media metal embossing artist. Her workspace is very well-equipped and full of inspiration! The workshops have been so much fun to take a beautifully completed project home with everything you need provided. Esme is knowledgeable, helpful, patient, and a great teacher! I am really enjoying taking what I have learned so far and applying it to my own creativity. "I'll be back."
"I have known Esme for more than ten years and have always admired her creative skills. I have purchased many kits and finished products from Esme. If you want to receive the perfect packaged item, Esme has it down to perfection - so much so you don't want to open it and spoil it! The delivered items were as advertised and of high quality, and the service and packaging were excellent. I had the opportunity to visit Canada, and Esme agreed to a one-on-one workshop. Esme is a great teacher, and the workshop was of excellent value. I learned a great deal in the time available, and certainly more than I expected to. Esme answered my many (and there were many) questions with patience and expert advice. Esme was happy to demonstrate in full, leaving me with a greater understanding and increasing my love of pewter even more. Esme's workshop has enough space to move freely, and the view outside beats any holiday destination! Esme's home workshop venue was well organised, and all the materials and tools were available. I recommend these workshops to get expert tuition and improve your skills in a hands-on environment. Thank you, Esme, for being the experienced, knowledgeable, kind, and supportive teacher we all need. I look forward to attending more workshops when I am next in Canada."
Esme is very knowledgeable and gifted. She is a great teacher too. She does not rush her students or customers. I highly recommend taking her classes & buying supplies from her!!!!
I bought some of the cutest little tea light holders from Esme. I used them as part of the table decorations for my husband's birthday, and everyone thought they were great! I would recommend her stuff to anyone; she has real talent!
Thank you for my package of pewter arts. I want to tell you how exciting it was to open my package; every piece was lovingly wrapped in beautiful tissue and held in place with your beautiful sticker. I have always loved "packages," but even more exciting (even though I knew what was in the package) was to open each element. Your directions and photos of the project were so helpful and concise! I am so excited to start my newest projects! I also look forward to my next "project package" from you and hope to make the trip from Alberta to your studio in Creston to take one (or more) of your workshops. Thank you for your attention to detail and commitment to making each person an "artist"! Thank you
