Note: A torch can be purchased at Lowes or Home Depot. It is a MAP Gas Kit and uses a disposable gas cyclinder. The tip is standard with the kit. I also use an acetylene with the same results with a #3 torch tip.
Thanks, what a clear, clean explanation. I love the graphite detailing, it makes a wonderful Dr. Seuss-ish piece! I'll have to try this.
Another great tutorial. This format is much better than a video.
Love this, and the tut is just right! Thanks so much for a new trick to use.!!!
Question...when you place the enamel inlay, what is the consistency of the enamel? Is it mixed with water? I'm a newbie and trying to learn as many techniques as I can! Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated!!
Love the finishe piece!!! Nice Chris! Lillian hits the nail on the head - I immediately thought of Horton Hears A Who! Question: Do you use the graphite (pencil) like an underglaze and seal it with a top coat enamel for the finish fire?
Wonderful...desperately want to see a close-up picture of the finished piece. Not sure were the graphite was added as I have never used it before. Thank-you!! Michelle
