These were our label deisgn with the holes punched through them, this label has been sand blasted as a key for the enamel to stick to, once the black enamel has dried after being coated onto the label it goes into the kiln for 1-3 minutes between 780-840 degrees. It then comes out a shiny black. We wait for it to cool then coat it in white. Once the white has dried we can then scratch into it with a pin, nail, compass or scalpel revealing the black underneath. Once you have completed the drawing on this layer, it goes back into the kiln for another 2-3 minutes. Once this is cooled you sand back the gloss with a metal grater-like sander. You must do this over water so your plate is wet and you do not breathe in the dust particles as they are glass. This then gives you a matt finish to enable you to draw back into your layers. You can repeat this process as many times as you wish, painting back into it with the black and white enamel.
