These Japanese enamels were produced and the colours especially blended by master enamelers at the Art Clay headquarters in Japan. They are some of the best in the world and praised by world-renowned metal clay and enamel artists. If you've taken a course with Joy Funnell, you know these are some of her favourite enamels to work with and it's easy to see why! They produce long-lasting, beautiful, vibrant colours, especially on silver as seen in Joy's pieces below:
Please note: like many other high quality enamels, these contain lead.
Please review the SDS sheet here and use caution when working with these enamels. Wear a protective mask and gloves and work in a well-ventilated area. Keep away from children and do not use while pregnant. Store the enamels in a cool, dry location and avoid direct sunlight.
Red Transparent - ** Please note: Use the colour swatch as a guide. Enamel colours change due to different variations like how thick you apply it, what you're enamelling on, your computer screen, etc.
These enamels work best direct onto silver - no flux needed
Firing direct onto silver: we recommend kiln firing between 760 - 800°C. For a piece around 10g in weight something around 2.5-3 mins seems good but kilns vary and the shape of the piece can also make a difference so testing is always needed.
Available in 20g, 100g, or 500g
Thos is a beautiful transparent enamel. Looks zmazing over silver or gold. Highly recommend.
I love this color. You can use it without flux on fine silver. If you use it over fine silver, it is very closed red color. If you apply over the flux, it is just a little pinky :) Shipping is fast as usual☺️
I first used these enamels at YCMI 2018. I'd been wanting to try enamelling for ages but had been too nervous to have a go at home. They're really easy to prepare and use and I love the colour
This is a lovely red, which can go straight onto metal clay with out the need to flux, I am so pleased you are stocking this.
