This book is a great book for the beginning enamelist like myself. It has a number of projects that guide you from simple to complex procedures. It has alot more interesting techniques of wet and dry enameling than the many america books I own. It also talks about enamel decals, which I haven't seen in any american book. There are a number of US and European suppliers in the back of the book too-VERY helpful!Get this book FIRST, then move on to the others-you won't be sorry.

This book is very good for the beginner. It guides the artist through projects. I would recommend for anyone. Very pleased.
