Been doing some more enamelling recently. I’m getting a little bit more confident with the process itself so now I’m experimenting with different effects.
I gave it a couple of sifted layers of kingfisher blue (which comes through a lot darker over copper than it does on silver) and using a hole punched piece of card as a guide sifted a layer of turquoise over that. Because it was only the one layer of turquoise it’s a little bit patchy, but I like the effect.I may go back and do a second layer, but I’ve not decided yet.
This is transparent amethyst enamel which has also come out a little bit darker than expected with it being put onto copper. On silver it comes out a lot more purple.
This one just needs a final cleaning up and polishing and I’ll start wearing it. I like it that much.
Once I get my extra large disc cutter I’m going to have a go at doing it in a larger size.
