Experimenting With Crackle Enamel
I fired the bead at 1470 degrees for three minutes. It came out looking like this.
The next step is to apply the liquid enamel over the crackle base. I only have white in the liquid enamel. First you have to add water and mix it well (there are good directions on the package) and then dip the bead in it.
The liquid has to dry completely before it is fired.
I fired the bead at 1470 degrees for 3 1/2 minutes. Viola! It crackled!
I wouldn't say this is exactly what I had in mind but it's not bad either. The liquid enamel fires to a less glossy finish than regular enamel. More experimenting to come!! If you are reading this and laughing at my bead, please feel free to comment, I would truly love some advice on using crackle enamel!
