Polymer artists have long tried to replicate the soft blurry edges that are the hallmark of copper enameled pieces.
Low fire (cold) enamel powders were rumored to be the answer but my vials of powders went to the back of a bottom drawer several years ago after some messy attempts.
Croatia’s Nikolina Otrzan makes me want to dig out my powders and give it another go. Her tutorial shows me where I went wrong. She uses liquid polymer, layers and other tricks to keep the powders under control.
Nikolina has lots more patience than I do. She loads up her instructions with photos and steps. I pare them down for my experiments to see how they fit my style.
Imitative enamels may be the next big thing. If this rings your chimes, now’s the time to explore.
