1. Clean copper shapes with copper cleaner and a scouring pad or by soaking in a pickle agent such as Sparex. Rinse well - water should bead and run off the surface smoothly. Note: Do not to touch the surface after cleaning to ensure enamel will bind properly. Then apply a water-based adhesive like Klyr-Fire to prepare the metal and allow the enamel to stick to the surface. Using a sifter, liberally coat the surface with the powder enamel of your choice.
2. Pre-Heat the kiln. Place the charm on a metal trivet and place in kiln using an enamel firing fork. Fire for 3-5 minutes. Delphi Tip: How do you know if your kiln is the right temperature? Watch the color of the trivet. An ideal color is between an dull red to a cherry red glow. An orange or yellow color is too hot.
3. Remove and set aside to allow metal to cool. During this time the enamel color may gradually change.
4. Once cool, thread a Curly Q hanger through the charm. Adjust the other end of the hanger to fit snuggly around the stem of the glass of your choice. Delphi Tip: For additional individuality try making your own hangers using art wire.
