When all the cloisonne cells are filled with enamel there will be many hours of stoning and finishing to reveal the fine silver wires underneath. It's exciting like being an Archaeologist or a Paleontologist to reveal the hidden treasures that lie underneath!
very enjoyable both the pic, the background, and for allowing us to be on this journey. to my Suprise I now understand why you were researching snakes on this MOTH!!! lol mind blown lol. I'm going out to get more popcorn. thank you!!!!
I am inspired! I have never done this technique, it is a very exciting.
I have done some enamel work on fine silver for my current project, 'HORUS'The
Egyptian 'God of Kingship' .the enamel is Thompsons, both leaded and lead free.
Leaded seems to hold color better (these are opaque colors only in the spirit of Egyptian linear concept) here are some pictures of some items.
