Fuse with A Rainbow of Colors!
Complete set of colored enamels includes 43 different colors of opaque and transparent enamel powder. 17 gm per color. Compatible with 90 COE and 96 COE. Matures between 1250 and 1450 degree F.
Enamels can be sifted on projects, used with stencils, mixed with Klyr Fire #7405A1 and painted on. You can even use to write and draw on glass! Mix enamels with Liquid Stringer Medium #40900 and clear fine powdered frit. Apply with an applicator bottle. Project below from "Contemporary Glass Enameling" book #6629.
Note: For your safety wear an approved particulate mask, such as #5159 respirator, while handling powders.
Pros : For the price, the assortment of colors is great. I have been using these for several years now, and have made some beautiful pieces. As far as the COE, these don't have one and can be used on any glass.
Cons : As with all enamels, you have to keep a water supply handy as they dry quick, and it makes it difficult to keep a smooth line.
Other Thoughts : As with everything, trial and error is the way to go. Do some experimenting on small pieces of glass by making sample strips. This way you will have the colors and know how to use them. If you make your sample strips on clear, all you have to do is lay the clear strip on top of the color you want to put it on to know if it will be the right color.

National Book Lovers Day is a lesser known holiday - much to my disappointment. Its celebrated on August 9th every year. I love books. I love books so much that in my house, every day is Book Lovers Day. Im hoping youll join me in celebrating for this one day at least though. "A book is a gift you can open again and again." – Garrison Keillor "A home without books is like a room without windows." – Horace Mann Books have always held a special place in my heart. They open up a world of new possibilities to me. Each time I come back to a book, I bring fresh experiences and perspective to it, which lets me take something new away from it. Art books are no different. In addition to the bones of the process, the invaluable instruction that they present, they offer an opportunity to dream
