What is Copper Enameling

Copper enameling is the process of fusing enamel (which is glass) onto a copper base. 

Enameling is the process of applying a layer of colored, finely ground glass particles to a surface (in my case: copper) of which it is made to adhere by heat (in my case: melted with a flame from a torch).

Enamel is glass.

Enamelling is the craft of melting glass on to a metal surface.

In time (when am in the same place as my pictures) I will show you my process of how I create The ShuttleSmith Glass Enameled Copper Tatting Shuttles.
