I love enameling because it is so wide open for being able to experiment. That’s what makes art exciting and fun for me. There is ALWAYS something new to try, it makes me feel like a scientist. Today’s lab study was enameling with Borax. I’d add a layer onto a piece of copper, then heat it up - best part! It bubbles up and moves all over the place. Then I sift some transparent enamels on top and heat it up again – bubbles and moves again… I could do this all night!

I have this book called Experimental Techniques in enameling by Fred Ball. Lots of fun stuff to play around with!
