Many of you have shared that sometimes you buy cool new art supplies, but then are afraid to use them.
If you have EF Color enamel powders sitting on a shelf, no worries!
I finally opened mine (it ONLY took a year and a half) and am going to show you all of my experiments and exploration so far.
These powders are super easy to use, just sprinkle them on! After a brief time melting at 300 F. they have the appearance of glass enamel and are quite durable.
I’m primarily using them on polymer clay, but you can use them on anything that will safely go into a 300 F. oven.
By the way, during my research I learned the name is pronounced by saying the first two letters, “EEE EFF,” but I promptly forgot this while recording. I’ll try to remember in future!
Watch the video to learn:

Keep an eye out for part two on this topic, where I experiment with translucent, glitter and texture powders, plus maybe attempt little landscapes.
