Enamel crafts are decorative techniques that apply glass glaze to metal objects and surfaces that melt on the surface with intense heat, creating a brightly colored decorative effect.
Enamel is made from glass powder, colored by oxides. It is applicable to wet or dry metal. The metal is then heated to about 850 degrees Celsius. Heating is usually done in an oven, but can also be done with a hand torch. The heat melts the enamel and melts the metal. The heating time is short, usually up to 10 minutes.
