In this video from Rio Grande, enamelist and teacher Ricky Frank demonstrates how to make a custom enamel sifter using stainless steel mesh, an old cap, cutting shears, a trowel and a torch. With finer or coarser screens than a commercial sifter, custom sifters allow you to better control the grain sizes used in your enameled designs.
