Gold Applications for Enameling

ByCharles Lewton-Brain

This paper details how to inlay gold and other metals into copper to create patterned sheet to construct with and enamel over with transparent enamels. The step-by-step example shown uses a spiral iron binding wire to indent a thick copper slab. Gold is fused into the indentation and the excess removed. When rolled out this produces beautiful gold inlay to enamel over. The paper also details how to do paper die printing, a lovely addition to any metal surface. This technique was publicised by Lewton-Brain in chapters in the magazine Glass on Metal, and in Karen Cohen's book on enameling "The Art of Fine Enameling". This paper addresses one section of the 'Gold Applications under Enamels' paper in detail and depth. 18 pages, BW diagrams.
