As Lisa Bialac-Jehle puts it “Simple”  How to use Graphite on Enamel

Graphite on Enamel

Lisa Bialac-Jehle 

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
    Done.
    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!
