Copper enamelling - essentially, the melting of glass enamel grains onto a copper surface - is an exciting and fascinating technique. Enamelling on Copper highlights the unique interactions between copper and enamels, and gives a detailed account of working with this wonderful combination. The basic technique - simply sifting ground enamels onto a copper surface and firing the two in a kiln for one minute - is a thrilling experience, but delving deeper into the techniques pays even greater rewards. Starting with an introduction to enamels, this new book goes on to explain how to work with an enamelling kiln, including temperatures and timings; the different kinds of enamels and how they work together; the enamelling process and how to control small sifted particles of the glass enamels to achieve your designs. A final chapter is devoted to the practice of firing the enamels higher than is necessary in order to transform their colours to create unique effects.
