More experimental enamels, yes it is beginning to look like , if it moves enamel it!!
These are cut down teaspoons and a butter knife together with the screen printed transfers
I made earlier in the term. I have also been playing with gold leaf which fires into the
surface of the enamel giving a delicious twinkle under the sifted colour.

As you can see I am still experimenting with tile cement and carborundom plates.
I have also tried to be a bit daring (for me) with the colour in these prints.
Simultaneous colour separation inking really shows up the textures in these plates.
I am really enjoying the little birds at the moment. I have had a family of sparrows come to visit my tiny town garden.
But I am really excited about this visitor, I believe it is a Garden Tiger Moth, please let me know if I have got that wrong.
I had three of these beauties flying just out of reach of Iris the cat this evening. A gorgeous flash of colour!
