Back to green...

[caption id="attachment_632" align="aligncenter" width="490" caption="enamels over copper"][/caption] I worked on some enamel pieces today after perusing the book I posted yesterday.  I am still playing, so it helped to understand a few things.  You can use the firescale that reacts in the copper in your design.  The undersides of the oval pieces are very interesting.  In order to prevent cracking, you counter enamel the back side of your piece, the leaf & the earring components have a black back,  the ovals have some color.  I found my green in the studio today, green makes me happy, what can I say?

The back side is much more interesting when you add some color--agree?

Did you know tomorrow is Pie Day in the math world, 3/14, Pi Day?  Our house smells of cherry pie, adapted from this recipe, Crustless Cranberry Pie, --the cranberry version is easy & really great--if fresh cranberries are in season! We had some organic frozen dark cherries in the freezer. I decided to make two pies, one for us, one for the Geometry class.  Good eating pi!
