Efcolor Enamelling Guide: Part 1

Efcolor-Enamelling

Your Guide To Enamelling Jewellery

Enamelling jewellery is the technique of fusing powdered glass with metal.

Used to add colour, imagery and texture to metalwork, enamelling is used for a number of decorative pieces including bowls, glasses, vases and decanters, alongside enamelling jewellery.

Traditional enamelling effects are achieved using specialist equipment and a high powered kiln. However, with Efcolor Enamelling powder, you can achieve professional jewellery enamelling results with just your home oven.

Getting started with Efcolor Enamelling

All you need is a range of Efcolor Enamelling Powders, your choice of enamelling blanks and a household oven – now, you have everything you need to start creating professional enamelled jewellery.

What is Efcolor Enamelling Powder?

This is a low melting resin powder that gives the same appearance of any other professional enamel powder. However, with a low firing temperature, you do not need a kiln or any other expensive equipment – you can simply heat your enamelling powder in a home oven at 150°c or gas mark 3.

Alternatively you can also use the Efcolor stove. The Efcolor enamel stove requires only three tea lights to create your beautifully enamelled jewellery.
