This single sheet of Fine Silver Foil (999) for enamel work can be used to create a shimmering background effect for transparent enamels, or a finishing effect for an opaque enamel base coat.
To use, a base coat of either enamel flux (also known as colourless transparent enamel) or your chosen enamel colour should be applied to the piece.
The silver foil is then adhered to the pre-fired layer of enamel with the aid of an adhesive or gum before re-firing at the same firing temperature as the base layer.
This causes the foil to adhere to the base layer.
Further layers of transparent enamels can then be applied over the silver foil as desired.
This single sheet of silver foil measures 100mm x 100mm and is approximately 0.1 microns thick.
Supplied between two sheets of waxed paper for easier handling and application.
Goldleaf Glue 75ml (Gold Size).
Adhesive for use with Gold Leaf. Gold size is white spirit based, making it easier to thin down to help correct errors.
