In its primary state, enamel is a glassy material closer to crystal than glass.

The enameller's art consists of fixing the powdered enamel on its metal base (gold, silver, or copper) with series of short firings at a temperature hovering around 900° C.

The powdered enamel are applied with a spatula.

Thin gold or silver foil can be dipped into enamel to make the colours more shining.
