I bought this book to get a little information about the art of enameling, and wasn't disappointed. As a new enameler (haven't even taken my first formal class yet) almost any book on the topic will teach me something. The projects in this book weren't hugely appealing, but that's not really the point. No doubt I'll have learned a lot just by doing them and that's good enough for my purposes right now.

Bought the book for beginner enameling. Lots of information and great images. Easy to understand and definately worth the price. If your interested in enameling with a kiln then this is the book to start. Buy it, you won't regreat it.

As the name suggests this is a brilliant book for not only the beginner, but advanced students will find many helpful suggestions within the pages. Very glad I purchased this book

This book says a beginner's guide and it is perfect for that but I also learned a few things and I am not a beginner. Would highly recommend it for yourself or a gift for a "crafty" friend.

I have taken one copper enameling class and also bought another recommended book which was very informative also. But this book was on a true beginners level and really helped me get started.
