I finally got back into my studio after too many months off. Enamelling has been on my 'to do' list for a long time, and I had acquired a box of unlabelled enamels, so today was the day to start testing them out. It was a day of trials and many errors, but I think I am starting to get the hang of some of the techniques. It is not as easy as it all looks, the sifting has to be right, heat has to be consistent and even, and it was sometimes a surprise to see how the colours appeared on copper.
I fished the day with a stiff back, some decent tests, some interesting failures, tons of ideas and a feeling of inspiration. (Thank you Margot!)
