Clean the surface of your metal with a wet Scotch-Brite pad to remove all dirt and oils (Figure 1). Handle the metal only by its edges to keep it oil free.
Use a paintbrush or a spray bottle to apply a coat of Klyr-fire (holding agent) to one side of your metal piece. Fill a sifter about one-third full with clean, dry enamel powder. While the holding agent is wet, position the sifter above your metal and gently tap the sifter’s side to release an even layer of enamel grains onto your piece (Figure 2).
Use a spatula to transfer your piece to a trivet (Figure 3). Allow the enamel to dry completely before transferring the trivet and its mesh support to the kiln for firing.
