Enameling Made Easy is thorough and easy to read. The tips and FAQs are relevant and very accessible. The progression of steps for each process is beautifully organized and logical. The photo quality, layout and images whet the appetite to learn torch fired enameling and to create the broad array of projects. Facts regarding the different processes are very easy to locate. This is a gift. Other books I have used can be very frustrating when one tries to find answers to questions that crop up during different processes. It is well written and totally understandable. Minute details (which are often overlooked) are included to allow for a successful, positive experience for the beginner and experienced enameler alike. The safety instructions are outstanding as well. The included DVD, showing closeup sequences of processes is very helpful! I can't say enough good things about this book, it is a labor of love and devotion to the topic, as well as a reflection the author's giftedness as a teacher. I highly recommend this book to the novice and experienced enameler alike.
This is a very comprehensive book for someone who has never done torch fire enameling and to those with experience. I've been doing torch fire enameling for about 4 years and I picked up a lot of great tips which will be incorporated in future designs. The DVD that comes with the book is very helpful to see how Anat works with each of the different projects. After reading this book I have so many ideas in my head! Thank you for the inspiration! I highly recommend this book!
I've been very fortunate to take a Torch-Fire Enamel class from Anat. It was excellent. The projects we did in class were fun and with everything we learned Anat showed how we could do it at home. Of course when I got home and tried some of the techniques I realized that I had forgotten a few tips. Then Anat's book comes out. This book covers the techniques in class and goes even further. I love the way the book is organized. It has the techniques in the front, which is both useful for the beginner, but also for a quick review, but the projects which take up the majority of the book is where it's really at. If you want to learn the technique, you can just start with the first project and all the steps are there with very detailed pictures. The projects build as you go through the book. Even the simplest projects are great pieces of jewelry that you won't believe you made. This is really a hobby that you can easily set up on a small workspace in your home and Anat's book shows you how.
This book, Enameling Made Easy, is just what I was looking for to boost my enameling ventures. I have two other enameling books, and they are inspirational, but this one has projects that are more to my liking, while teaching some basics, such as cloisonné. Any jewelry making enthusiast should consider adding this book to their learning library. It has a CD, and the book's printed directions are clear with good pictures, making the projects easier.
I like the book but the dvd was very useful. It has short chapters explaining specific techniques with good visuals.
I've taking enameling classes and have done some enameling but haven't really enjoyed it. I think the projects I learned previously were just too easy. Thus I thought I would step back a little and take a chance on this book. There are a lot of basics in the book I didn't need; however, I did pick up some tips and tricks that improved my enameling process. I liked the projects a lot.
As an emerging enamelist, this book really helped pull a lot of information together for me! Great step-by-step clearly written instructions companioned with pictures that guide the way!I've watched the DVD twice and keep the book at me ever ready at my "shop" in our garage (my play station).Experimenting with some of these techniques has been great fun; and given me the courage and direction to keep trying more!Book well done!
I have kiln-fired enamel pieces for years but am experimenting with torch firing. This book is packed with good ideas and useful tips for enamelists at all levels. The designs are fun and the instructions are comprehensive. Looking forward to more books from this author.
