Some are older designs and some new but all feature finishes with enamels that create some interesting surfaces. It is almost impossible to capture the effects in photographs unfortunately since the iridescent glazes change in different lighting and angles.

    • The iridescence comes from the paint used. There are a lot of choices to get that effect. I can’t paint the paper before folding with the enamel paints because the enamel sets up rigid and cannot be manipulated after it is set. You can paint the paper with some paints before folding as long as the paint doesn’t crack or rub off as you work the paper. Some acrylic paints will work, but the best bet is to use watercolor paints, inks or dyes.
