Cumbrian Enamel Challenge 2 – Part 1
It’s a Bugs Life
This was for FUN, there was no ‘winner’ or judgement on the entries – just enjoyment & appreciation of each of the creations and an opportunity to experiment with new materials & techniques & often get very frustrated by both!
The pack contained:
Copper sheet; Copper wire; Frit; Glass threads; Mica powder;
Waterslide decals; Beech twig.
At least 6 of the 7 items had to be used in the design. Entrants could use as much, or as little as they liked of each item.
Only enamel (in any form) could be added. They could solder, rivet & glue where required.
The copper sheet element contained some copper shim & 2 thicknesses of copper cut from pipe, opened & rolled.
