2010 - June - Reticulated Foils Technique

This is the 6th piece of this BJP. In addition to the enamel, I have used glass, ceramic and metal beads, pearls, and holographic sequins.

The enamel is a reticulated foils technique where gold and silver foil are layered and fired for a long time so that they fuse together and form a bumpy texture (retiuclate). Then enamel of various transparent colors are sifted on. The top layer has a gold butter decal fired on.

Roll your mouse over the image to see a close up of the enamel.
