Vitreous Enamel Colours


I am feeling a bit under the weather today so thought, while I am staying at home trying to rest and recuperate, I’d re-do my enamel colour boards. This morning I have rearranged and revitalised my opaque vitreous enamel samples onto a new board. Having this board arranged in a colour wheel is important to show customers when I am discussing enamel jewellery commissions or if I am trying to combine good colours for a new jewellery design.

The photo doesn’t really do the vibrant enamel colours justice but you get the idea.  Enamels have such wonderful names like ‘buttermilk’ , ‘coral’,  ‘peppermint’ and ‘duck egg green’.

I can now see the holes in my colour collection. I think I need to get more purples and greens. What do you think?

  1. Definitely more greens. If you arranged mine like that, I’d have a heavy bias to green and hardly any other colours at all! Jill

    • It’s funny because green is my favourite colour but I don’t have many in opaque. My transparent board on the other hand will be very green heavy ! Thanks for your comment Jill.
