    It chips off all the way to the bare metal, albeit with some white enamel showing as well.

    How do you pick up the item? Do you touch it at all with your fingers and if so is it by the corners?

    Just trying to rule out possible problems.

    I've had some chips on the edge even when it has been rounded using wet packing and picking up with fingers. When I've used champleve technique its not been a problem as there is a metal edge right around the item so fingers don't touch where it's enameled.

    I do pick it up with fingers, wearing gloves. I'll have to pay more attention to it but I think I tend to pick it up by the sides rather than the corners.
