Color Reference Tools for Enameling

Check here for a couple of color reference tools that are very helpful for your enameling projects.

One, is a product made for films in photography. It is very simple to over lay the sheets and see how the color changes. I had an inquiry the other day on how an enamelist could darker the red that they had available. It is great to be able to keep moving when you are in the middle of an enameling project.

I can be a bit hard to tell here, the red over the blue darkens the red.

Cool little color reference tool for enameling.

Tidbit for the Day

See this little tool, the Deep Throat Dial Caliper?!  This handy little tool will help you measure the thickness of your enamel around the entire surface of your piece.  It’s very important for the thickness of the counter enamel to match the thickness of the top enamels, or you run the risk of cracking.  So, go on over to Contenti Tools and purchase yourself a pair.  Here is the link for the tool:  http://contenti.com/measuring-n-testing/calipers-n-sliding-gauges/deep-throat-dial-caliper
