Enamels on copper plate on silver

Various pieces of PMC had areas that were electrolytically copper plated, then covered with areas of reptile green and ruby red transparent enamels. On firing the results were mediocre, however with hindsight I realise that I chose two unpromising colours - in particular reptile green goes brown on copper, rather than the beautiful green it goes on silver flux on copper. I then went on to embedding small copper shapes in PMC and applying enamel, though in most cases coping with the oxide was the biggest problem.
