The Art of Fine Enameling

£23.95

Second Edition by Karen L. Cohen

Pre-order
Book Description

The most comprehensive book of enameling and enameling techniques has been completely revised to bring you this essential new reference.

The wonderful world of enamelingfusing glass to metal under high-temperature conditions-is diverse! Practically anything made from enamel-friendly metal can be enameled, from vases to jewellery to buttons to metal mesh and solid forms. In the first edition, published in 2002, Cohen explored this world as it was then, but so much knowledge has been gained in the last 17 years that it was definitely time for an update!

Every chapter and project has been completely reviewed, revised, and updated; it’s a whole new book, and one you will want in your reference library. The look and organization is updated, 15 years of experience has been added, about half the projects have changed, and two types of mini-projects to expand your learning experience are included. In addition, each project has a gallery of the work of other artists working in the same technique, to give a view of other ways a technique can look and be used. Classic techniques such as champlevé, cloisonné, and plique-à-jour each have projects, as do newer approaches such as the use of graphite pencil and enameling on steel21 project lessons in all. And you will find the extensive troubleshooting chapter indispensable.
