Enameling 101

enameling 006 2 cropHere’s a peek at something else I have been working on.  My hubby is teaching me how to enamel.  So far I have had 2 “lessons” and am starting to get the hang of the process, which, by the way, involves a very HOT kiln!!  The biggest challenge so far is making a crown stencil small enough to fit on the copper tags I want to use, and not having it fall apart after one or two tags!  On some of the tags I am experimenting with stamping letters and such (ok, “Bella 2009”) and then using a wash of color on top of that.  Interesting results so far.  I’ll keep you up to date on my progress, as lesson 3 is in the works!
