Regular enamel can be applied by a dry or wet applicaiton. The book discusses the traditional ways of sifting and wet packing. Judy Stone's project introduces a different way to apply wet enamel in a process she calls wet-floating, which requires a sifting of a hard clear enamel before firing. The following has been brought to my attension: a video that shows an enamelist in China applying wet enamel using an eye dropper - very interesting.
