SE-2 Separation Enamel DRY Powder – 1 OZ.
Example of how it is used – Separation Enamel is painted in a linear design over 2-3 coats of pre-fired transparent and/or opaque enamels, with transparents being the final coat. When fired, the separation enamel changes the viscosity of the area producing a flowing or spreading somewhat similar to a marbleized effect.
Dry and fire at 1450 – 1550°F for 2-5 minutes.
This dry separation enamel creates a marbled color effect when mixed with Thompson Squeegee oil and painted in linear strokes (no more than 1/8″W) over 2 or 3 pre-fired coats of enamel. Allow it to dry, then fire at 1,450° to 1,550° for 2 to 5 minutes. For the most intense results, place the painted lines at least 1/4″ apart. This separation enamel changes the viscosity of the nearby enamels during firing, causing the flowing appearance that resembles the patterns in fine marble.
Mix with A4 klyr fire liquid.
Tom Ellis from Thompson Enamel is the expert, and he said that he prefers to mix A4 klyr fire and water in a 50-50 mixture and put into the powder separation enamel and then paint it on the fired enamels as described above. To mix, he uses a piece of glass and puts a small amount of the SE powder on the glass and mixes with the 50-50 klyr fire mixture. He says not to make it too thin or it will drip when you paint it on.
A4 is klyr fire holding agent and A14 is squeegee oil, a water miscible medium oil that can be cleaned with water.
