This book has been a labor of love for me. Everything I know about torch-firing will be yours. I explain the differences in the methods of torch-firing, explain the tools, talk about safety, and show and explain the technique. Then we start working on 22 projects. I demonstrate how my background in ceramics has been instrumental in achieving special firing effects from smokey hazes, to crispy edges, and green freckles that bubble up through the enamel to flash pink and gold. Wow! Yep and there's more ....
Learn how to use decals, ceramic underglazes, ceramic crayons, and millefiore and how to embed watch gears and other objects, such as jump rings, in the enamel. Two studio discoveries ... the No-Solder Bezel and a rivet that uses no hammer ... are explained in detail.
So you say you want to get started? Well, can you imagine setting up an enamel studio with all of the supplies you need for a little more than 100?!! Plus, in this technique we don't scrub metal, wash enamel, apply Klyr-fire, or sift enamel.
The Painting with Fire Method is groundbreaking! You can get started now by buying the torch-firing kit and be prepared for the more advanced techniques contained in the book!
