how do the cold enamelling process work and what do the results look like? i've done vitreous before (even got a little mini kiln!)

Cold enamelling is the popular term used to describe the process of applying decorative epoxy & UV resins. Unlike traditional vitreous enamels, no firing is required for them to cure, hence the term “cold cure” or “cold enamel”.

The resins can be applied to virtually any material including gold, silver, bronze and brass! :D

For information on enamelling look for the Guild of Enamellers website. I can highly recommend joining, it is a fantastic organisation

These went straight on my *must have* list.

I love that they are entire kits as well so a novice (like myself) doesn't have to wonder what else I have to buy!:)

Wow! Love the idea of this cold enamalling - will def be looking into this!
I had no idea these products existed!
Oooh excited!!!

Does anyone have examples of work which have used these cold enamels? I'd love to see!

I like the look of this new range and am keen to have a go. I would like to ask if there will be top ups available of the colours in the future.

I wondered that too - I've just bought one of the sets of transparent enamels (blues), but if there was individual colours available I would have probably bought a wider selection of colours without buying the two sets (reds and blues).

Anyone had good results using a blowtorch to fire enamels or is a kiln essential? I have use of a kiln in the local college but have also tried to fire enamels with a blowtorch a few times at home with little success. Any tips?

Is there any chance of selling the component parts of the kits separately at all in the future?

The kits are great but they are alot of money I don't usually have in one go, buying component parts over a few weeks would be much better.

Also buying the separate colours would be useful as well as I only want a couple at a time.

If I use 8 red and only one green I don't want to be buying full kits again and ending up with lots of colours I don't use... if you see what I mean :)

I've looked into it for you and we will be stocking the individual colours from late August/early September. Also in regards to the individual products from the kits we stock them within our 'enamelling' product category, in the sub-category 'tools'. There's a direct link for you below.

Hooray - I love the coloures range and it will be fabulous to be able to top up on hardner!

22-07-2009, 03:19 PM
is that the resin too individually? That would be good as I already have some.
Is it the same as Coloures? Looks like Chemset to me? (which is what I already use, GREAT product, no smell no polish!!)
