Our colour samples shown on the product page are fired on copper. Copper is an inexpensive base metal as opposed to Silver so it is popular for use in enamelling. Copper oxides form at high kiln temperatures when fired to enable the enamel to fuse to the metal. These copper oxides colour the enamel and also reduce the transmission of reflected light.
Use a colourless enamel flux first to cover the metal as this will absorb the copper oxides, resulting in a bright and clear surface onto which transparent coloured enamels can be applied. A point to note, which ever type of enamelling you decide to use, the colours of enamels will vary depending on the metal being used, often enamel powders in jars look different after firing. Colour samples shown are fired on copper.
Enamels may not look exactly the same when fired on PMC, fine silver or gold. Transparent Enamel colours allow light and colour to pass through to the surface, our transparent enamel sets offer up a striking range of colours available in sets of blues and greens including turquoise, aqua blue, kingfisher, mallard green, elf green, cobalt blue and emerald green; and reds, purples and pinks including and dusty rose, deep ruby, royal purple, violets and cherry red and many more to help you with your design ideas.
Opaque enamel does not allow light to pass through, instead, the light bounces back from the surface to leave a beautiful finish and can be used over engraved, patterned or carved surfaces to great effect. Colour ranges include Pink, Post Office, Signal Red, Scarlet Terracotta Arras Red and peppermint, fir green, mazarine blue, dark lapis and many more to help inspire your creativity.
