The Art of Enameling: Techniques, Projects, Inspiration by Linda Darty



Linda Darty has outlined the process for a variety of methods, and the book is a treasure trove of how-tos as well as good tips. I find this to be the book I keep going back to as I learn how to enamel. The book covers all aspects of enameling, include equipment, supplies, techniques, and projects. Each section contains useful and beautiful pictures of enameled pieces to illustrate the techniques being highlighted. My only minor issue is that the book does not contain a supplier list, however the publisher maintains an excellent list on it's web page and includes the address on page 175 of the book. This is one of the best "craft" books I have ever seen on any subject, so if you have any interest in enameling this is the book to get! Highly Recommended! CFH.

Note: Linda Darty was a student of mine at Penland. While I do hear much of my knowledge in her, she wrote the book. Lark Books was overwhelmed by her strength, dedication, and overall ability to require good old-fashioned country-style truth. Linda has a life filled with the positive. She is empowered with knowledge and character because she never misrepresented herself or her ability, nor those of others. Yes, I am prejudiced. -Bill Helwig, from Glass on Metal magazine.

I love Mercedes
This is the best enameling book I've ever read. It somehow covers basic to intricate all in one book. You can get this book as a beginner and refer back to it forever.
You also get a bit of a bonus, Linda includes lots of great information on techniques that aren't enameling directly. Foldforming, encaustic (seriously! I thought I was one of ten people actually doing encaustic lol) etching etc. Now she doesn't go in depth, but that would make this heavy detailed book even longer (not that I would complain Haha).
She does go into super detail about enameling, as one would hope. I don't think I expected how detailed though. Extensive information into different types of enameling, torch, kiln, wet, dry, then techniques, painting, pouring, sifting (detailed photos and hints on proper sifting technique!), stencil, Sgraffito (scratching), drilling dry fired and filling with fresh wet or dry. How to fix, make bezels, set into bezels, think about your piece and determine the best way to plan how it will be set.
*takes breath*
Aand..... on it goes. The single most comprehensive book on enameling I own, and I own several.
We love our books, inspiration, reference, reading when we can't be doing... so we will always collect them, however, if you are starting out or have limited budget or are looking to add to your extensive library with a book of substance this is your book. More than worth it's price (don't tell anyone else so the price doesn't go up but this could be priced as a textbook, it's laid out like a class she teaches and it's jam packed with years of experience... worth several times it's price! Shh lol).

This book will be posty note marked on every page. Wealth of information and inspiration newbie to professional. Drool worthy photos. Must have for every artist using enameling in their work. Lots of historical information about enameling so it's a lesson in the evolution of enameling as much as the process.
Photos are showing the amazing things a master can do with enamels but don't be discouraged, she spends tons of time showing basic steps to becoming a master yourself. This is 176 pages cram packed with tips, tricks, suggestions, history and life experience.
I can't say enough good about it... clearly lol.
Get this book, you will not regret it!

Lark books can be kind of hit or miss on useful information sometimes, but this one is solid gold. I should note that I'm a beginning enamelist with a background in glass, so I have some basic understanding how how enamel (ground glass) works. However, there's a lot I don't know, and this book lays it out wonderfully, with good illustrations and wonderful artist examples. I'd highly recommend it.

This book arrived a few days ago. It's comprehensive approach is just what I was hoping for in this technical oriented volume. (I've already read most of it and learned so, so much!) I've perused other enameling books and thought they were very nice and helpful but his book by Linda Darty is so well laid out in how to get started, materials and tools needed, to proposed lovely projects. But don't be fooled as I have by so many books that are simply a gloss over to the craft and going straight to projects. Those are nice if you have a foundation of skills to build on and need some inspiration. This books really does give you much needed skills to be an enameling artisan. I also love the 'Hot Tips' & 'Fast Facts & Helpful Hints' placed here and there because they really do contain much needed tips she's found useful in her personal work. I also love the 'Historical Highlight(s)'. Knowing a German monk named Theophilus the Presbyter was writing about and creating enameled pieces back in the 12th Century blew me away! I give this book highest marks for essential information for the beginner or as an important volume for the enamel artist who knows there's always a little more to learn!

"The Art of Enameling" is a great resource of those wanting to learn about the enameling process. We have been thinking about expanding our small business to include custom made jewelery and higher-end crafts, so an artist friend of ours recommended this book to use as a starting point in enameling.

The book covers all aspects of enameling, include equipment, supplies, techniques, and projects. Each section contains useful and beautiful pictures of enameled pieces to illustrate the techniques being highlighted.

My only minor issue is that the book does not contain a supplier list, however the publisher maintains an excellent list on it's web page and includes the address on page 175 of the book.

This is one of the best "craft" books I have ever seen on any subject, so if you have any interest in enameling this is the book to get!

Highly Recommended!

I've been looking for a good book about enameling for quite some time. This book proves to be the "bible" for a learning enamelist such as myself. Linda Darty has outlined the process for a variety of methods, and the book is a treasure trove of how-tos as well as good tips. I find this to be the book I keep going back to as I learn how to enamel. I definitely think it's a must-have!

Great book, Can't say that I am a better enameling person for it, but the steps and methods are very well put forth. A better student than I would get a lot more out of it.

Considering the difficulty of obtaining a good resource for enameling...I must say this book is the best you are going to find outside of one on one instruction. If you can find any video tutorials online like on youtube that actually SHOWS you someone performing said technique you will be much better off. Enameling takes a sort of finesse you can only obtain by actually watching the wrist flicks and etc. You can and will learn a lot from this book. Plenty of photos and good advice BUT do supplement it with youtube videos or an in person class and you will be enameling beautiful pieces in no time. Definitely recommended above any other book on enameling out right now.
Excellent book with detailed description of the enameling process. I am definitely elated with this new addition to my books.
