The enamel on the glass is a jewelry making technique that can be traced back to ancient times.
You can find detailed examples of enamel jewelry and artifacts in ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt.
Cold enamel is a modern technology that can mimic the appearance of glass glaze without using heat.
Cold enamel is a cheaper way to add color to the metal.
You can make your own cold enamel jewelry by adding paint to epoxy and then applying colored resin to your metal jewelry discovery.
Sketch your jewelry design.
Determine the cold enamel color you need.
Plan where to place each color used in the design.
Buy or create a metal discovery with one or more batteries that can be filled with colored epoxy.
Cold enamel works best when placed in contained cells.
The walls of metal batteries do not need to be high.
Conversely, when epoxy is applied, the cell wall needs to be only high enough to hold the epoxy, and once the resin is cured, the epoxy can be protected from debris.
As long as it is found to contain one or more wall cells, it can be made of base metal, sterling silver, vermeil or gold.
Prepare metal for cold enamel by using two methods
Step process of cleaning.
First, clean the metal with acetone and remove all dirt and grease.
Second, rinse the metal with distilled water to make sure all traces of acetone are gone.
Mix epoxy according to manufacturer\'s instructions.
Add color to epoxy resin.
If you are using a cold enamel color kit, then add the pigment according to the manufacturer\'s instructions.
If you are mixing your own cold enamel color, add shavings, glass material, or even glass glaze, stir from eye shadow, pastel, colored chalk, cloud female pieces, until the epoxy reaches the color saturation you like.
According to your sketch, pour the colored epoxy resin into the cells found in your metal.
If ugly bubbles are formed when you pour the resin, then you can wave a lighter on the resin or place the resin under a heating lamp to remove the bubbles.
As epoxy is flammable, please make sure you do not close the resin to the heat source.
Let the resin cure.
Repeat steps 4 to 7 until all cold epoxy colors are added to the sketch design.
