Vitreous enamels and enameling tools and supplies from Rings & Things
These 80-mesh medium-temperature medium-expansion vitreous enamels can be kiln fired or torch fired from 1,400° to 1,500°F (760°-815°C), and are perfect for use on copper, gold, low-carbon steel, fine silver, fired copper clay, and fired fine-silver clay.
- Translucent colors are normally applied on top of a white base coat, so you can see the true color of the translucent enamel unaffected by the color of the base metal.
- Opalescent colors are normally applied on top of a base coat of your choice.
- Clear enamel can be used on its own or in combination with other colors.
Brief overview: Clean your metal thoroughly before beginning, then sift or paint the enamel powder in desired pattern. Fire, and allow to cool slowly. See Enameling 101 below for more details.
