About

I Love Enemas.com provides, Enameling Tools, Enameling Supplys,Enamel Bead Frit, Mixes and Special Effects Enamels & Supplies, Tools to Artists.

I Love Enamels.com and Packinghouse Gallery information. Providing Enameling Supply's to encourage artist.

My wife Cheryl Anne was friends with Lois and Joseph Spencer for many years. Cheryl Anne always had fun playing in Joe's studio. And of course buying antiques from Lois's antique store was a lot of fun. Lois is in heaven now, Joe worked happily in his new studio until his heavenly journey in August 2016 at the age of 91.

After Cheryl Anne and I married, Joe asked me to be his professional photographer. Little did I know that I also would be playing in Joe's studio.

Joe's considered a pioneer in the art of torch fired enamels. His students have come from all over the world. He's taught since the 70's. Using his original bead pulling station, enamel work stations and unique enamel frit mixes he has helped artists with their creative endeavors. To learn more about Joseph Spencer and his work you may visit this site...

Joe and I worked side by side making tools for torch fire and kiln fire artists that love painting with fire. A term used for artists that create their art using intense heat and of course fire. Many of his students now do this full time and some of his students that you might be familiar with include Barbra Lewis and Pam East who have continued in Joe's foot steps in helping promote the love and art of enameling.

Joe created/ developed 12 color mixes that he has used in all of his workshops since the 70's. In 2015 Joe asked Cheryl to kick things up a notch and so she did. That is how Joes Color Frit Blends came about.

In 2015, my wife Cheryl Anne started creating her own colors for fun. She loves making gifts for her friends and family. Everyone of course has their favorite colors. After some of the artist using enamel saw Cheryl Anne's new colors, they wanted some.

This year, 2016, we continue providing new tools for torch fire and kiln fire artists. We have several new enamel glass frit mixes coming out and new tools which will make artists smile.

In 2017 we made our first educational tutorials to help our customers be in the know. If you would like to view the videos they can be found here...
