Thompson Enamel Transparent - Medium Temperature, Medium Expansion enamels are a glass product formulated to create a permanent bond with fine silver, copper, and gold. Bronze is not recommended for enameling. These high quality, acid-resistant, 80-mesh enamels will provide rich, beautiful color for your metal clay work.

Color image are reference for each color on different metal ( It is always prudent to pre-test enamel colors on examples of the workpieces you are using to resolve any slight variances that may occur in different batches of enamel and its performance on your specific metals). *Some color are over Gold.

*The general firing range for Thompson enamels is 1400°–1500°F (760°–815°C). Enamels will fuse in 1 to 4 minutes depending on the color, type and thickness of the metal, and the temperature of the kiln.   A typical firing is 1450°F (790°C) for around 2 minutes.  Enamel powders will change in color after firing.  Refer to the color image for a general indication of the fired result.  Enamel colors may vary slightly from batch to batch, so pre-testing your enamels before using them is recommended.  Bronze is not recommended for enameling.  The enamels are not formulated to adhere to it and will crack or chip off.

Additional firing notes:
2010 Soft Fusing Clear may yellow slightly when fired directly on silver. Initial firing on copper should be 1550°F (845°C) to clear the oxides off the metal. The copper should appear clean and bright under the enamel If it appears reddish or mottled it wasn't fired hot enough and/or long enough.
