the workpiece through the
open spaces.

is applied to workpieces
through traditional and
non-traditional silkscreening
material.
Sifting
—Enamel powders
are evenly applied to metals
through a mesh screen and
fired in individual layers.
Cloisonné

create design cells (cloisons)
that are then “wet-packed”
with enamel.
Champlevé

areas are etched or carved
out of the workpiece and
filled with enamel up to the
metal surface.
Sgraffito
—Lines and
designs are scratched into
an unfired layer of enamel,
and the workpiece is then
fired.
Limoges
—Fine enamel
particles are suspended in
oil or water and “painted”
onto the surface of the
workpiece.
