Pam's Enameling on Metal Clay Kit Includes:
Firing Enamels in a Speedfire™
ElectricMini™ - 1600 or PRO
The main differences between
firing in a Speedfire™
ElectricMini™ (SFEM) and a standard front loading kiln are in
opening and closing it and in how you regulate the temperature.
Rather than removing the top
completely, simply tip the front of the kiln top open enough to slide the
trivet in and out.
Temperature control on the
SFEM PRO is simply a matter of entering the temperature you want and setting
the dual mode control to “Ramp and Hold”.
The SFEM 1600 is a fixed
temperature device. It can be used
closed for flux firings on copper (see special notes on enameling copper), but
otherwise it should be propped slightly open to keep the temperature
lower. A small strip of fiberboard 6” x
1” x ¼” can be laid flat across the front of the base as a prop.
Firing enamels in the SFEM
1800 is not recommended.
