more enameling

I enameled my other little cup last week. I put on 3 or 4 coats of enamel.

This is what the enamel looks like before firing:

I used a Smith air/acetylene torch with a #3 tip. I think a #4 tip would have been better because it was taking some time to get all the enamel to melt, but I didn't have one at the time. I got one later in the week when I ordered some things from Rio.

Finished pieces:

These are some bracelet parts I started on last week while I was waiting to cast more scales for my necklace. This piece, along with everything else I have been working on, has been put on hold till I finish my necklace.
