Pam East’s PreNamel

PreNamel is a fantastic metal prep for enameling that works great on both copper and silver. Enamel may not adhere to a surface that has not been properly prepared, or it may pop off or chip after firing. Before beginning to enamel, it is vitally important that the metal be clean and free of all oxides, oils, dust, soaps or other contaminants. PreNamel ensures the metal is ready for enameling. PreNamel is non-toxic. CLICK HERE to watch a video about PreNamel…

 
 
 
 


 

Pam East’s CounterNamel

CounterNamel takes all the fuss out of applying and firing counter-enamel. Applying CounterNamel to the back of an enameled piece to prevent the enamel from cracking was tricky with traditional enameling methods. The enamel tends to drop off the back of the piece, even with the generous use of enamel adhesives such as Klyr-Fire. CounterNamel makes the task of firing enamel to the front and back at the same time a snap! This unique lead-free formula creates a layer of enamel that is hard and secure both before and after firing. Simply add water and it’s ready to use!

Pam East’s DeNamel

DeNamel is the sure-fire way to remove enamel from metal. Traditional methods of de-enameling required dangerous, caustic chemicals, or hours of drilling and grinding that left the metal a chewed up mess. Non-toxic DeNamel is safe, quick and easy to use! NOTE: You cannot selectively remove enamel. You must remove all the enamel. CLICK HERE to learn more about DeNamel…
