So after getting my headpins out of the kiln with quite good results I might add,
see Experimentation Part 2 ,
I decided to go a step further and try to torch fire some enamel on them.
I think I'm going to be doing lots of experimenting with this!!
This was the very first one I tried,
can you imagine the Happy Dance that this created!!!
I started with my little cheap butane torch and dipped it 3 times...I think, it's all a blurr really!
I want to do this again!!!!!!!!!!
For these I pulled out my big Barbara Lewis Painting With Fire
Burnzomatic Mapp Gas torch,
they are very pretty too, in a much more subtle way.
On the end of one of them are these....
dot sort of things...
that almost look like sequins.
How did I do that?????
This last one is an attempt to recreate my first one by going back to my little torch,
cool, but not as spectacular as the first.
Good thing I'm going to a Barbara Lewis class in Portland next week.
Maybe I'll find out why I got some of these results so I can do it again!
