ok - enameling.... first off the supplies are spendy (expensive) you have to have
-flat pieces of copper
- crushed enameling glass powder
- enameling shreads and pieces
- enaming contact glue
you take the clean piece of copper and you brush the glue thinnly on the copper
you then sift the crushed glass on top
you bake in the kiln 5-10 min (i forget - has been awhile - it is a set time though for the piece to get hot enough)
then you carefully take the piece out and let it cool for about 5 min - then dip it in water and dry it off
then you take your glue and apply it again over the same layer you just baked and place your bits and pieces put it back in the kiln and repeat the process - when you are through - you have enameled!
they are way better tutorials - i used to do this at a art center i spent time at i have been looking forward to buying my own materials for the last year - it is my next purchase after my sewing machine (i am finally getting my machine in march!) so i can give you a better tutorial then ---- as for now ----
i made them using jump rings and beads -
they are for sale on my site!
