HAND PAINTED ENAMEL BOX USING MY ORIGINAL ARTWORK





This is one of my bear's dressed as santa heading down the chimney which opens up to show a little village.First I had to draw a line drawing of the image onto paper to be made into a transfer.This transfer was then applied to the enamel box and fired in a kiln.After this process I then painted the image with enamel paint with about 4 layers with each layer having to be fired before the next layer could be applied.The process was the same for the base which was then mounted with a silver mount and boxed.
Thanks for looking
