    Where are the instructions? I downloaded the pdf but did not see much in the way of instructions.

    1. Type of cleaner solvent?

    2. Temperature of kiln?

    3. Where do I get the enamel?

    4. etc.

    This is BEAUTIFUL. I'd love to try this but will have to do some research.

    Je ne comprends pas.

    That's a great little kiln. I think I'll have to start there.

    Nice work. Thanks for the inspiration.
