How the blends/mixes are used. Joes Torch Fire Technique.

This is a short over all description of how this product is used to make copper enamel beads.
If you need lessons please contact us by email Enamels [!at] PackinghouseGallery.org

Take your base coat and place 1/2 of the jar contents on your work surface.
Take your color mix and place 1/2 of the jar contents on your work surface.
Try to be careful not to mix the two piles on your work surface.
* we use the line tool that Joe makes to keep the piles neat and separated.

Using your mandrel, carefully heat your copper bead and then roll the copper bead into the base coat pile to cover your bead, fire. Repeat this process 2 - 3 times until you have completely covered your bead. The base coat is always used first.

Heat the bead again and very carefully roll your bead into the color mix, and fire.

Cool your bead in cooling tray. As your beads cool down, you will see color change, this usually takes a couple of minutes. This is normal.
* we use Joes Bead Pulling Station when creating beads. It just makes life more fun and simple
