Fawkes the Phoenix by TrollGirl Fawkes the Phoenix by TrollGirl
I wanted to make a phoenix for a while, and a friend asked me to make a red bird, so it worked out well for me :D

Brass and enamel and a ridiculous amount of sawing.

Uh, you know, the usual way to make enamel...mix the medium and the pigment, pour with a toothpick, wait till it solidifies? :D

Do you mean the glass enamel? If it was glass wouldn't just stick to any surface when it cools, if its a sort of plastic solution that would work.

I stick duct tape on the back of the metal frame into which i pour the enamel, and when it hardens i just peel the tape off.
