New Enameling Book

Hi all: A little advertising, but this book answers a lot of the
questions we have been getting on Orchid lately on enameling.

A new enameling book has just been released called “Enameling with
Professionals” by Lilyan Bachrach Edited and published by Lilyan
Bachrach, enamelist of Bachrach Art Enamels since 1970

More than 20 of the leading enamelists describe the working methods
they have developed for their specialized enameling techniques.

Topics include: Cloisonn with fine silver and/or gold wires on fine
silver, sterling, copper and steel-Karat
golds-champleve-crayons-watercolors–large scale
mosaics-portraits-grisaille-deep bowls-overglazes-Riso screen-torch
firing-foils-basse taille-PMC

acid etching-and charts. Also a beginner’s course in enameling.

Over 200 pages, including 32 pages of color photographs with a
preface by Woodrow Carpenter of Thompson Enamel.

Lilyan started the book in the 1970’s and due to life circumstances
put it on hold. Finally, the book is out in hardcover. It is truly
a labor of love a beautiful book.
