RUST

At last I have found time to finish my latest enamels.
As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I wanted to experiment with combining the enamel with the rusting qualities of the steel.
I have not been disappointed, the rust adds a set of warm orange tones to the pieces,
giving the work that sought after shabby chic quality I like so much.
Scraping enamel away, layering and applying transfers, firing and refiring a piece
to distress the surface, suddenly my sketch book pages are turned into glass and metal!
