Hello everyone! 

Just wondering if anyone has any favorite Enamel books that they just can't live without! I want to build my library, and would love to hear what books everyone in this group loves!

I always recommend Beginner's Guide to Enamelling by Dorothy Cockrell and The Art of Enameling by Linda Darty.  They're both great books.

500 Enameled Objects:  A Celebration of Color on Metal

Lark Book

Is an excellent showcase of enamel artist's work!

and the Art of Enameling by Linda Darty.


I agree with Yvonne - the Beginners Guide by Dorothy Corkrell is a great place to start - but my favorite is "The Art of Cloisonne and Champleve Enameling" by Patrick and Judith Lull Stroshal (sadly out of print - but often available through http://www.bookfinder.com ) Both of these books are really good for beginners as they are comprehensive - and don't assume that you know anything.

Margaret Seelers books are also very instructive (The Art of Enameling, and Enamel Medium for Fine Art) and Fred Ball's Experimental Techniques in Enamelling is still the seminal work of it's kind even though it was published in 1972

I like the Linda Darty and Karen Cohen books - but the instructions in them are very minimal, and wouldn't make much sense to a beginner. Great pictures and inspiration though!

Here's a list of the books that are available in the George Brown library - check them out and see which ones you like best!

Thank you so much! 

I will look into all of these!! The library better be ready for me tomorrow! : D 

Today I got "The Art of Enameling" by Linda Darty, I have read the first few pages and think this book is going to be my new best friend for a very long time! :D Than you so much everyone for your suggestions! Hopefully I will have some new work to share soon!!!!!
