Painting in vitreous enamel additioonal info

Hans, One more suggestion. One of the things that I found most
useful was learning how to load my brush with different colors, to
get shading, and the kinds of brush strokes to use for different
effects. Also, there are special brushes that are very helpful to
use. You will find all this in the Bill Thompson books
which I mentioned in my other email.

I used to really enjoy working with China paints of large pieces of
copper which I coated with white, or very pale beige Thompson
enamels. The best effect was using opalescent white as the
background. Alma.
