FAQ/Answer

What is the difference between a kiln for enameling and a kiln for glass fusing?

An enameling kiln should be front-loading instead of top-loading. This is because the enameled piece is inserted into the kiln at around 1450 degrees F, fired for a couple of minutes, and removed while red hot. It would be difficult to do this with a top-loading kiln.

The kiln should be digital, because the enameling temperature is held for extended periods. You can also hold the temperature using an infinite control switch and pyrometer, but a digital controller does this automatically, which simplifies enameling.

Buy a kiln large enough for the largest pieces you plan on making. Before selecting a kiln, decide if you will use an existing electrical circuit or if you need to have a new one installed.
