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.

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.
