Once more, out of the lurkers corner…
I have been doing some experimenting with fire glazing enamels onto
copper and silver and have had success with tubular pieces. My
question is whether or not this can translate into flat pieces. So
far, I have been trying to work with a flat piece on a tripod but
I’m having trouble controlling the enamel (using Klyr-Fire as the
wetting medium) and preventing it from forming unevenly. I know there
will be some difference in thickness (not using any channel/cloisonne
wire) which will have to be stoned down but this is beyond that. So
far, I haven’t found this addressed in any of my references since
most of them concentrate on kiln-firing.
Anyone have any ideas/suggestions? Is it better to concentrate the
torch on the bottom of the piece rather than playing across the
enamel? All comments are greatly appreciated!
