Thompson liquid form enamel is a very fine powder, designed to be mixed with water and brushed on, allowing you to create fine lines and intricate designs. Mix this Thompson powder enamel with enough water to achieve a brushable consistency—for best results it should be thick, similar to pancake batter. Adjust the consistency as desired, using care not to make it too thin (enamel crystals become too separated to fire well).

Formulated to perform beautifully on a variety of metal and glass substrates, Thompson lead-free enamels are quality-made to deliver dependable, repeatable results. This medium-temperature, high-acid resistant enamel fires at temperatures from 1,400°–1,500°F (760°–815°C) on fine silver, copper, gold, low-carbon steel and fired fine-silver, copper or gold metal clay.
