Anonymous said: Hi Alice! I was wondering if you (in all your wisdom on making lovely things) could give me some advice. I would love to be able to colour some silver that I am working with, can I use enamel? Will it stay at all? ... or is there something better to use? Thankyou!

Hello anon,
You can colour silver using a variety of means. Enamels work well and stay fast, but as the glass granules melt at such a high temperature you will need to think of ways around soldering your findings (whole cast units, pieces that don’t need findings or use a special enamel solder that melts at a higher temp). You can fire enamels in a kiln or with a torch. Traditionally enamelling is a fairly involved technique, but there are some new substances on the market that can speed up the process or eliminate some of the traditional steps.
Enamel paints are another option - I use nail polish, but you can use train model paints (as they’re specifically for metals), but remember to test these on different surfaces for durability. Sometimes you will find a rough/sandblasted surface will hold the paint better. There is also a brand of paint called Porcelaine that you can bake onto your silver in the oven (this works well).
There’s also riveting non-metals onto silver. I used to work with laminate a lot, but you can also try plastics, fabrics and treated papers.
I hope this helps! :)
Alice
