More enamelling! I have realised the folly of trying to enamel on pieces that are not fully clean - each layer needs to be pickled, otherwise the enamel will crack - and sometimes it will come away in a large chunk...
I tried a bit of repairing and in one case tried fusing the cracked piece onto another enamelled shape. I'm pretty sure it will come off eventually, but really like the effect...
