Neat site with good Enameling Examples to check out!

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Since I have no hope of going to a school to learn to enamel I search the internet continually for things that inspire me and make me try or at least understand new things in Enameling. This site has a nice selection of work that this student has been doing. These are very nice.

I hope you enjoy them! Like I did!

So this is what we are all supposed to do as Enamelist. I wonder how many actually do this? I haven’t. I admit it. I prefer to tell the truth than to lie. I want to do this, but I am strapped for funds to buy sheets of copper. I know, everyone says copper is cheap. Well where I am it is not. At least not any that I have found. I really do want to make my samples. I figure I will learn alot. Do you people who have samples actually use them, or are they just there? I have mixed feelings. Anyway, this picture is exactly what we are supposed to do. It is supposed to be handy and if you have the samples I have been told you will use them alot.

I find these very cool as well! I like the holes on the side, plus knowing these are torch fired, hummm, I have a torch for lampworking, I guess I will have to give it a go and see what happens! Thank you for the inspiration!

Lovely earrings, tiny tini, 1/4″ and she says no counter enamel needed since they are so small. She has some pretty enamels on her flickr photostream.

What a great picture of what copper has to look like before you can enamel it….I have been watching Orange Peel Enamel on both Etsy and Flickr for a while, but these pictures really a fantastic. I love how well these are domed, I wish she would expand on her process though!

Aren’t these just the bomb! I am always admiring the work of others and I think these are just it! I love what she is doing and they are so much fun! I know she will do fantastic with these. I am really curious about the process that she uses, and what exactly she does to hold things together. But this is really neat and fun to see! Lovely picture besides!
