Picture of We Need to Make 3 Times

Making enamel earrings we will need 3 times of selecting and 3 times of baking. One for the producing of the back, another for the bottom’s color and the last one is for the pattern’s producing.

Step 2: Color Up the Earring Pendant Back

Put the brass piece on the tweezers and then put some enamel powder into the powder sieve. The powder sieve will be above the brass and we will slightly pour out the powder to make sure the enamel powder is evenly fallen onto the brass.

Step 3: Baked

Baking: Put the brass piece onto the baking rack and then slightly put it into the oven. The temperature will be set as 200℃ and bake it for 8 minutes.

Step 4: Soak

Wait for the baked enamel brass piece to cool off and we will use tools like mold to put enamel powder of different colors onto the brass. (The enamel powder for bottom color we choose is white and the color for the pattern is black.) Now we get the black and white plaid enamel patterns.
