I'm Melting!

I set up a little home for my torch and enamels yesterday. Hammered a few copper hooks and played with some color. I don't want to get too far behind in my clay work so I didn't spend as much time as I'd like but I had such a good time doing it. There was a bit of flaking on the areas where I probably didn't hit it with enough heat or the enamel was too thin, but if any of you smart people out there knows different... I love the idea of the hooks being "dressed up" with color.

I love how enamelling is somewhat unpredictable and its always a surprise what eventuates. These hooks are no longer hooks, but tiny works of art. Love em!
