Inspired by the fantastic collection of beetles in the Oxford Natural History Museum
I have been filling up the pages of my sketch book

with these incredible creatures. These drawings have been a starting point

for more enamel experiments. The beetles give me an excuse to start using some bright colours.

I have spent a splendid day with my daughter (celebrating her 21st) on an enameling workshop held at New Brewery Arts, Cirencester. The workshop was facilitated by Carol Griffin.
We used thin copper sheets and experimented with shaped paper punches,

paper crimpers,

an old sewing machine,

red, black and clear enamels,

and in some instances, just heat.

I really enjoyed working in a completely different way and exploring some new techniques. I also had a lovely time with my daughter.
