The most interesting part of the course is rendering. At Accademia Riaci, we use watercolours and colour pencils to render. Basic materials required are shown in this picture.

Besides using white paper, jewellery designs usually are presented on grey paper, before drawing out the facet of the stone, we have to give a uniform white base.

The watercolour we used for the uniform white base is different from the one we used for highlight and facet lines, Zinc white and permanent white.

I and my friend went to Venice this weekend, which is only about 2 hours train ride from Firenze.
