Enamel Bloodstained Crystals
Since the ancient Egyptian culture, the art world has always regarded enamel color as a noble material, so it is favored by art masters. The enamel color has the essence of glass-like raw materials. Once fired, the color does not change over the years, representing eternal significance. The enamel color raw material is a silicide. After grinding into powder, the impurities are washed with water, or the fine enamel color powder is spread evenly on the concave part of the engraving pattern with a small painting knife or a brush. Gently absorb the water contained in the fine powder of enamel with a dry cloth, and then fire it in a kiln at 850 to 900 degrees Celsius to restore the transparent appearance of enamel glass. After kiln enamel, there is no moisture at all, plus the density of solid is higher than that of powder, the volume naturally shrinks. Therefore, the process of first painting and then firing has to be repeated again and again and again and again, until the polished enamel surface is at the same level as the other metal parts, and reaches the state of perfect integration as a whole.
There are two types of enamel color: transparent and opaque. The transparent one will change depending on the thickness of the enamel. Therefore, it is most suitable for combining with the art of carving to show the delicate three-dimensional space created by hand carving. Mythique is using enamel color technology, the head is carefully carved by hand, the top of the three-dimensional body is transparent enamel color, and the fine enamel color is carefully polished. Under the light, the color is like a leap in the sea of clouds, lifelike. The shape symbolizes the vitality of the movement.
