Thursday at Higham Hall : Breakfast at 8, in studio by 9 I start with going back to basics and doing some work with enamel , fluxing and counter enameling the copper then sifting and firing the enamel onto the surface, nice results. The longest part of the process is washing and removing fire scale at the sink! But if you don’t do it thoroughly it will ruin your work. I also get a second piece started and I am experimenting with mixing the enamels and some bullseye stringers which should not be compatible but they worked well, I prepare some decals onto the prepared copper so I can do some painting will test more of this tomorrow. another late night we don’t get out of the studio until 9.30 pm Gin and Tonic calls again just the one then off to bed another long day tomorrow .
