Which Black To Use:

  • Tracing Black #61 (#RP 1063) has a small amount of brown stain in formula. Nice black with a hint of brown (rather than gray) in background.

  • Universal Black (#RP 1065) quite a bit of brown added in a very opaque color.

  • Tracing Black (#RP DE401) very high stain loading (matte). Very good for multiple firings.

  • Tracing Black Best (#RP DE458) true opaque black, slightly less stain loading than DE401, although still a matte finish. Has a small amount of Alumina Hydrate added to stabilize color if used in mixing or firing on other colors.

REUSCHE ENAMELS

Weather resistant colors fired to 1050-1080F.
Transparent colors, below, are used where the light will be transmitted through the finished project. They are meant to be applied as a matt to create broader areas of color. Two applications will give more even coloration. Multiple matts can be overlapped to get color shading. Smaller areas can be painted in with a tracing brush.
Opaque colors are used for applications that will be seen in reflected light. Unless the application is quite thin, opaque enamels will not transmit a lot of light.
Recommended to mix Enamels with water and Water Friendly Medium as the binder.
Sold in 1oz bottles except where noted as 1/2 oz bottles.

HELPFUL HINTS:

  • Since solutions (especially the metallics) look very similar before firing, Care should be used to maintain adequate labeling of solutions.
  • Always work out of a separate container to avoid any possible contamination of the solution in the original bottle.

  • Your glass must be clean of any residue (including oil from hands) - use rubbing alcohol or acetone to clean your glass.

  • Multiple thin applications are MUCH better than 1 heavy application, which can flake.

  • Do NOT fire metallics and lusters until they are adequately dry.

  • Kiln must be vented to allow escape of the vapors from the luster solvents which can dull your finish.
