HOW TO USE CRACKLE ENAMELS
Use either 1997 black, 1006 white or 2008 clear and fire it onto copper. Then you take regular 80 mesh enamel or liquid form powder and add a little water until it is mixed as thick as paint. Then sift the 80 mesh or brush or dip the liquid form enamel over the crackle base (1006, 1997, or 2008) and allow it to fully dry. Next, fire for 3 minutes, and you have a crackled surface!
Note: The crackle bases are 1006 white, 2008 clear, 1997 black. Those alone fire as ordinary enamels. You must apply the 80 mesh sifted enamels or liquid form enamels (buy in dry form and mix yourself) over those bases, and you get crackle. The items alone are just enamel; together they crackle. Crackle is a technique that happens when the 2 products are used together. Once you have the crackle surface, you can go over it with a transparent for some interesting-looking pieces.
