As Lisa Bialac-Jehle puts it “Simple” How to use Graphite on Enamel
How to use graphite on enamel?
- Counter enamel on copper: Fire
• White or other light enamel: Fire
• Lightly etch the surface with glass etching cream. I use Etch-All For around 10 minutes. (Follow container instructions for use.)
- Rinse off Etchant. Dry.
• Draw on the etched surface with graphite: Fire
BTW: If you don’t like the finished results? Etch-All will etch the graphite off easily.”
PS: I tend to use whatever random mechanical pencil or sharpened pencil I have laying around. 😉
Love these jewels and such a nice simple effect of using graphite on enamels. Thank you, Lisa, for sharing!
