Morning all. Im new to enamelling. Getting reasonable results. I counter enamel on the back and it looks good, but when I flip it over to torch the front enough to melt the enamel, it ruins the back with hazy shadows and rough areas on what was at first smooth
My first thought is that Im getting the second firing too hot but Im trying to only apply enough heat to melt the enamel, but there is what looks like a flame shaped mark where it has lost its shine
I then tried a little home made mini kiln made from firebricks and that was a better result, although took more time
Do I need to back off with the flame and take more time?
Ive seen videos where the person just goes ahead and torches it directly, seemingly without issues.
Im using Vitrum Signum opaque
