I am working on my enameling techniques - using fine silver as a
base. I have two questions resulting from the trials I did today and
I hope you wonderful folks can help.
The first odd thing was when I went to put a 3rd layer of Thompson’s
Aqua Blue onto a pendant. I also added a touch of Mars brown that
did touch some of the aqua blue. When the piece cooled all of the
blue had turned a muddy fir tree kind of green. I was really
surprised, I thought I would only get that from reds, and that only
the red area would turn like that. Any clues?
The other question relates to Thompson Acrylic Enamels. I got a
sample kit and have been trying to test fire them, but apparently I
am missing the instructions. I’ve been firing at 1500 like I do w/
dry enamels but only a few colors survive. Does anyone know what
temp I should begin watching those at?
Thanks so much
