Mr Thrifty and I have been crazy busy this year. Neither of us finish working until 9pm earliest and we’ve had little or no time to relax of an evening for months and months on end. Things like that start getting to you.
I’d been sent out a cold enamelling kit from Homecrafts and if I’m honest taking one look at the kit scared me off and I allowed it to sit on a shelf for a few weeks. However we took the leap this week and it was so much fun and relaxing to boot. I’d never heard of cold enamelling in my life until the PR team got in touch with me but it is basically everything you can do with regular enamelling but without a huge, great big kiln taking up half of your living room.
The kit comes with everything you need down to measuring cups, rubber gloves and mixing sticks, so all you have to do is read the instructions and get to work.
We added our cold enamel to decorative brooch blanks in the hope that they’d turn out nice enough to give to someone as a gift and I was pretty chuffed with the results especially because this was our first attempt.
Mine is the white and Mr Thrifty’s the red, I much prefer his – I definitely need some practise. What do you think?
