Enamel testing

Finally the video is uploaded, waiting for the response from the manufacturer. I did extensive testing on this low temp enamel. I am thrilled. It is an enamel and it acts like one. A few things to consider when using it (hey, it's an enamel not a chalk pastel or an acrylic paint) but wonderful results can be achieved. Once I'm done with what I have to finish I will make a piece that will be a real piece not to be tested.

Also finally managed to upload the tutorial for my sponsors.

Taped half of the tutorial for tomorrow.

I got the printer in the afternoon but didn't even get around to unpack it. I didn't get to eat until 4 pm. Honestly I was a little bit wary about eating as I didn't want to get sleepy (which, now, I am. sigh) but I think I did accomplish a lot.My back muscles are BURNING though. I really need to drop everything and lay down.

Here's for you, some of the testing pieces. Yes they don't look that neat, because what I was interested in was the way it applies, how it reacts, colors, etc, not prettyness. I love it. There are two pieces of scrap clay that I tried to see the applying metallic waxes and acrylic how that goes, how cleaning of metallic waxes and acrylics from the enamel goes, etc etc etc. Enough said, you'll see a pretty piece soon. Until then, this is how it looks like. Finally. A REAL ENAMEL that works on polymer clay. That we can buy here in the US!!!


  1. I read that this enamel must be cured at 150 C which I think translates to 302F. Did you find this to be a problem with any of your polymer? Thank you!

    1. No, not at all. Remember it goes on polymer already baked. If you tent the piece you should be just fine. I have a small convection oven and use a ceramic casserole dish to bake my pieces, I never needed tenting or anything. Polymer clay will be fine at a higher temperature (of course not too high)for a little while. You can also go for a 285F-290F and just add an extra half an hour. I'm a little late in posting the final review because I had some health issues and lots of dr. appointments that ate into my time, but I promise it's coming soon.


Thank you for your comment. It will be posted after being reviewed by the owner of this blog.

What's on my list of buys you ask?

Well, from my "monthly chats with you", you already know that my "must" to buy that are planned and budgeted, and very i...
