Sea Grasses Collection

Over the past several months, I've had people ask me if I would sell smaller sizes of enamels in sets.  On my 13.5 hour drive from Maryland to Florida, I came up with some nice enamel collections ... with some cool names.  Each of the enamels are sold in 1 oz. sizes and are opaque, unless indicated as Transparent.

This one is called "Sea Grasses" and consists (from left to right) of Nut, Lichen, Nile Green Transparent, Robin's Egg Blue, and Moca.  These are Thompson Enamels, 80 mesh, medium temperature/medium expansion.  The cost for this collection is $16.40, plus shipping.

I'll be adding more collections, like Summer Breezes, English Garden, Hot 'n Spicy, Rum Runner, Cafe Au Lait ....  Don't those sound great?  :-)  I know you're already conjuring up images of what enamels with be in each set.

Barbara, yes they are bullet casings and I'd love to see what you make with them!
If your going to cut a quantity of them I recommend the foredom and cut off wheel.

Great idea Barbara. You can dip you toe in the enamel pool and try lotsa colours and find your very own faves.

Great idea Barbara. I was just thinking the other day that I should get Thompson's sampler, their color charts really don't show the true color of the enamel.

I think adding collections of colour ways is a fab idea.

Ooh, yay! That way we can try out more colors as well as using your beautiful artist's eye of shades that work together..."off checking the bank balance" :)
