Give me metal and color and I am a happy woman. Enamels are a wonderful way to paint on metal. There are many techniques that artists can use to get the effect they want. The techniques I used for these two pendants are pretty fundamental, but experienced enamellists create elaborate works of art on their miniature metal canvases. Some of my favorite enamellists are Harlan Butt, David Freda, Marjorie Simon and Sarah Perkins.
