Steven also demonstrates how to use transparent enamels over stamped metal designs. Now you can mix your love of metal stamping, with torch enameling!

As always, Steven has a great teaching style and that makes it pleasant and fun to learn. His tips about using stamps and other items to texture and create designs on the pieces prior to and during enameling are really cool. I've learned some new techniques today and that's always a great thing. I look forward to more classes by Steven.

I really enjoyed Steven's Letterpress Enameling. Such great tips & clever techniques. I have been enameling for quite awhile, with preference to kiln enameling.... After watching this video, I am anxious to try torch enameling again! And with Texture & Messages! Whoa!
Not sure if Steven has a video on the Thompson's acrylic enamel paints that Beaducation has available, but that would be fun too!
Another great Beaducation video, well paced, clear, calm instructions, articulate & friendly.
Thank you!
Cheers

Great video. Thank you.
Is it possible to dome the forms alittle before firing on the enamil?
Beaducation Replied:

You can enamel a domed piece, although specific to the letter stamp project, it will be tricky to get a full letter impression on a curved surface.  You'll love Steven James' book, Discover Torch Enameling, which has many projects that include enameling irregular shapes - even wire!
