I have been asked about the effects that constant running water over
enamelled copper pieces, which would be in an outdoor situation as
in a water feature.
The client needs some assurance from someone who has done something
similar some years previously that all will be well. Do you know of
any such piece that has weathered a long period of time?
I wondered if I should use lead free enamel? I would have to buy
this in as I still use my extensive stocks of Thompsons leaded for
most of my work. I do have quantities of Schauer leaded
transparents; do you think Schauer would be any more resistant to
any slight etching effect from any chemicals that may be in the
Adelaide would not have such a problem with acid rain as many places
in the world, but our water is hard with a high mineral content.
Thanks for your help, Jenny Gore
