Welcome to my Enameling Blog of Cloisonné Jewelry Techniques and others such as Plique a Jour, Champlevé Enameling and yes Painting Enamels. My site is a donation of everyone’s time to share and further the education of the fine art of enameling techniques. I am very happy to answer questions to help you, but please ask here and not emailing me directly. At the bottom of this page there is a comment section. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!!
I share my life’s passion and inspiration with anyone who wishes to read. I am a self-taught enamelist and goldsmith. I did not live here in the US where there was a knowledge base and to my advantage, my knowledge came from trial and error and today I continue to build on trial and error.
Read test analyze and you will surely learn.
Sharing my experiences selecting a Mortar and Pestle for Enamelist
Here are three sizes of mortar and pestles I have tried. The largest one is from Thompson Enamel = 4.5″ ID. The middle size one has an ID of just under 3 “. from Siga-Aldrich. And the tiny one, super cute is 1.5 ID from Thomas Scientific.
For me The 4.5 just a little too big and heavy. Unless you are needing to grind large amounts of enamels.
The tiny one is just a bit too small but the cost is a bit over the top for a more comfortable one.
So this brings me to the medium size one. And my best fit my needs best.
