We have a new Instructable out! It’s for the more experienced Othermill user (or a really conscientious beginner).

Cloisonné enamel is an ancient technique for adding color to the surfaces of metal, ceramics, wood, and other materials.

Traditionally, it can be done with powdered glass which is then fired in a kiln, enamel paints, or carefully cut semi-precious stones, among other methods. The name comes from the French for “compartment” (cloisons), from the compartments that you create, then fill with enamel to make an image.

We’re getting into holiday gift season, and we love being able to make presents for people at the drop of an end mill.

Have a look and tell us what you think!
