Photo 3 of 5 in Enamel Miniatures

2 littles tests
those 2 are the tests I made to try the painting mediums , they are 28mm diameter and 28x28mm for the squre one. The kittenwas paintedwith sandal oil andthe bird with lavender, I prefered giving up the painting They were not worth the effort to improve them. It's better to use the time trying to make better ones I'll frame them in a little bronze frame

Francoise Zainal's Album: Enamel Miniatures

DESCRIPTION : I work with metal clay and use it to frame the miniature It's 40 years that I didn't paint on enamel, I must learn patience and paint more and thinner layers painted on blythe white opal (bought in 1977) with Schauer paints and an old painting medium I bought in 1974 that smells like terpentine.....I tried lavenderoil and sandal nut didn't like it . I made the frames with bronze clay . The round enamel piece is 35mm Diameter , the square is 35x35mm
