Émail en Ronde Bosse Enamel
This style of enamel become very popular during the Art Nouveau period, although it was invented much earlier. While all the other enameling techniques we’ve talked about are done a flat base, the émail en ronde bosse style is applied to 3-dimensional shapes. Before applying the enamel, a gum or glue to painted onto the surface. The enamel adheres to this base layer and when the enamel is heated the gum or glue melts away, while the enamel remains intact.
