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.

Topics covered include:

  • Full account of different kinds of enamels and how they work together
  • Instructions on how to work with an enamelling kiln, including temperatures and timings
  • Advice on the enamelling process and how to control small sifted particles of the glass enamels to achieve your designs
  • Examples of enamelling effects and uses, including making gradations of colours, a range of textures, realistic images, large wall sculptures and enamel bowls
