Porcelain Enamel on Cast Iron

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

this may be a misguided question but any information would be greatly appreciated. Lately I have been looking into getting some of my designs made into cast iron. I am wondering if it would be possible to apply/spray ‘porcelain enamel’ to the exterior of these objects in the form of glazes and fire them as I would ceramic objects? The desired look would be like the Le Creuset dutch ovens. I’ve been trying to look into how this layer is applied and simply can’t find any applicable information.

Any thoughts are welcome, thanks!

Cole

I found this, sounds like fairly low fire, 800c for the glaze fire.  Probably have to use a low expansion glaze like a spodumene flameware glaze.  I'm gonna guess you'll need to do a lot of testing.
