STudio Buttons - Enameled in Copper

2186 - PeacockCopper works differently in the kiln from silver and thus different techniques are usually created with it. For example, if an opaque base is used, there is no need to use silver as it will not show. And the first layer of a copper enamel, using transparents, is very important because there are oxides in the copper, that if not removed, will cause a tomato-red colorization and thus the result is not the clear color desired. Silver enameled button can be seen here.

Eutectic Enameling

This is a new technique that was born from an error. It is fine silver fusing into the copper background and forming an irregular pattern that is very cool. The shape of the pattern is not totally controllable. But if it is done over a Basse Taille then it will follow the lines of the BT pattern. This form of enameling is rare and only started to be used today.

Reticulated Foils Enameling

This technique involves layering gold and silver foil and fused at a high heat for a long time (about 1450°F for 15 minutes) so that the foils fuse and ripple into each other (reticulate). Then colors are sifted on top.

Paillons and Perrieries

These buttons all contain paillons - precisely cut embossed gold foil. Some are just scross, but some are specific shapes likes birds or stars. Paillons that have a mound of enamel in them are called pierreries. Note that although paillons were used quite a bit in olden times, they are no longer manufactured and are hard, if not impossible to find. I'm so lucky to have a found a stash of them and thus to be able to be used in my artwork.

Torched Fired Enamel

This technique is not listed in the Blue Book - the enamel is fired with an open torch, rather than putting in the kiln. If leaded enamels are used, it can be characterized by opalescent colors and a luster finish. All these buttons do not have counter enamel; the backs are what is called Hellfired Fire Scale - all black.

Special introduction price.
