**The Charm of the Crafting Process**

The crafting process of cloisonné is full of artistic charm and exquisite craftsmanship. From preparation work to filling with enamel, each step requires the artist's patience and skill.

**Crafting Methods and Steps**

1. **Preparation:** First, prepare the canvas and wires. Use B-7000 adhesive to fix the wires along pre-planned lines on the canvas. After the adhesive dries, use small pieces of wood to straighten the wires to ensure a smooth surface.

2. **Shaping and Trimming Wires:** Use tweezers and manual skills to shape the wires into various forms and curves, then use scissors to vertically trim the wires to ensure tight connections and avoid gaps between them.

3. **Filling with Enamel or Glaze:** Mix temporary fixing glue with water and combine it with washed enamel or glaze, then fill it within the enclosed wire areas. Carefully ensure uniform color filling.

4. **Applying a Protective Layer:** When the surface is semi-dry, spray laminating glue onto the surface using a spray bottle to create a sturdy protective layer. This step can be repeated 2-3 times to enhance the strength and durability of the artwork.

5. **Completion:** Finally, place the finished cloisonné piece on a clean, flat surface and let it dry and set for 18-36 hours. Once completed, the cloisonné piece will reveal its beautiful and captivating artistic effect.
