Playing with Enamel

I've had a little starter kit for some time from Painting With Fire shop on Etsy, been waiting for a number of things to finally give it a try, not the least of which is getting my studio moved to it's new location and set up. It still needs some work but I got it ready enough to have my first go at it.

First off, some time ago I bought a big bag of destash stuff from. I took out the few things I wanted at the time and put the bag in the closet and forgot about it. I just recently remembered it and thought it would be perfect to use as practice pieces for enamel, lots of stuff I can ruin and it's no big deal. There are actually a bunch of cool stuff too, I'm going to save those for when I've gotten better at it, but there is plenty of junk for me to play with for now.

Here is my first attempt, not so good but that's ok. There are probably 30 of these little frames in the pile.

Then I tried a bead, a little bit better but still need practice...I can do that!

Fun fun fun!!


  1. what a great destash! They are looking good - keep us posted!!

  2. Everything begins with the first step ... and I'd say you took some leaps! Good goin'!

  3. You are going to have so much fun! It becomes addicting. For your first attmepts they look really good. Just keep practicing.

  4. The bead looks excellent for your first session! You have lots of stuff to play with. Have fun!

  5. It looks like you have some fun stuff to work with! I can't wait to see what you create!!!

  6. oooh! so jealous!! that pile of destash looks like just the ticket for your practice.
