Lead-Free Opaque of finely ground enamel consists of 21 intermixable enamels that blend so well that a complete spectrum of hues and shades may be achieved with a basic stock of colors. These vibrant enamels mature at the glass fusing temperature range of 1300-1550F. They can be mixed with squeegee oil, clove oil, Klyr Fire and then airbrushed, painted, sifted, or sponged on top of glass, enamels, or sandwiched between layers of glass/enamels.
Use our Vitreous Tracing Black
as the outline and detail work, mixed with the clove oil
. Fuse this first and then paint on the Fusemaster enamels mixed with squeegee oil
. You'll need some freezer paper, a palette knife
, a container for the turpentine
, turpentine or brush cleaner
, and tape to secure the freezer paper to your work surface. Mix the enamels and oils together to create what looks like oil paint. Then paint your heart out. Clean brushes with turpentine. I highly recommend Bronwen Heiman's Vitreous Glass Painting Techniques book. The Lead-Free colors can be used to add color to any pate-de-verre project. These colors are approved for food bearing surfaces. All colors come in our nice plastic containers with labels. Perfect for your studio...no messy baggies with wasted enamel!
