Why do the 2016 new colors cost more.?
for over 40 years Joe purchased enamels with Thompson Enamel. He had a
lot of stock of his original colors on hand that he could sell, at the
prices he purchased from years ago.
When we started testing for
new color mixtures, unfortunately we had to purchase enamels at the
higher prices. We needed enamel to make the mixes and we needed to
purchase enamels from Thompson at the new prices. Which as you can
imagine, prices from several years ago, were cheaper than they are now.
This is just the way it is. We can't control that part of things. Sorry.
Will your enamel mixes work with 90 96 or 104 Coe glass? No
Why is glass frit for bead makers cheaper than enamel glass frit?
Enamel glass frit is made special to work with copper, silver, gold and PMC and metal clays.
The cost to produce the enamel is more. Add to that bead making frit for 90-96-104 is sized.
enamels come in 6/40 size. We hand shift each color, several times
before we even start to make our mixes. A lot of love and labor there.
But its so worth it. Remember, the enamel colors spread with heat, so
little bit goes a long way.
