I have no experience with enameling at all, but wanted to know how to do it. This book was a great intro. to the process. I haven't tried it yet, but I do feel that I could at least make an attempt, based on the instructions in the book. Many instructive books leave you with too many unanswered questions, which prevents you from actually trying things yourself (especially when dangerous elements are utilized in the process, as in jewelry-making). For someone with some metal-working experience, however, I believe that you could actually get started on your own with this book.
