Upper left corner picture-
These are 'leaded' enamels that came with my vintage kiln i purchased. The difference in color from these leaded with my other unleaded enamels is pretty amazing.

Bottom left corner picture-
This picture shows a single sift of brown fired (small disc on right) and the larger disc has been sifted and fired with two layers of enamel to show a darker color.

Botton right corner picture-
This is one of my favorites. It is a green enamel that i fired (or should i saw forgot was in the kiln) for 4 minutes...i love the color that was brought out by the longer firing process.
