Some new enamels

I have been really enjoying making these small square samples. They are small but very satisfying. I am learning a lot about cloisonne. Today I worked in 24k gold foil. I have never worked in gold before due to it's high cost but using the foil makes it affordable. The color is amazing. I put a thin layer of Thompson's Mandarin Orange 2840 over the foil and it is really making the color pop even more if that is possible. These are unfinished, but I will post them as I progress. I hope I don't ruin them as I am apt to due when it comes to the final finish.
