Hi, Enamels can be fired with a torch. Preferably from
underneath…Deb Lozier, a well known enamelist does most of her work
this way. I have also seen a torch fired plaque by Fred Ball I
think…all white enamel given depth and shade by the length of
exposure and intensity of the heat. I have only done beads and a few
small cast pieces myself.
Of course it would be hard to get an even coat of color over a large
surface this way, but it can be quite beautiful. Try doing an online
search under those two names or checking in books. If you can’t find
info e-mail me personally and I will figure out what books I have
that talk about it and forward it to you. It will be a while before I
have the time to do it though. Big order in January, who would have
Karen in Northern Ill.
