Pre-coated enameling iron, also known as low carbon steel, is excellent for all Thompson’s Painting products, including Overglaze Painting Colors, Painting Enamel Kit, Acrylic Enamels, Watercolor Enamels, Liquid Form enamel colors and the Enamel Marking Crayons.
Enameling Iron (Low Carbon Steel) is also valued for it’s minimal warpage during firing. Hairline cracks in painting enamel are eliminated when working on steel. Thompson’s 2008 Transparent Clear works well as a cover coat over painting enamels used on 18 gauge pre-enameled iron tiles.
Pre-coated Enameling Iron is available with ground coat only, where you can apply the cover coat (GCET-Discontinued Upon Product Depletion , GSET, & GRET Series – 18 gauge) or pre-enameled with ground coat and white cover coat, ready to use without any preparation (CET,SET, & RET Series – 18 gauge).
