Hi Anne, I use the Fusemaster high fire enamels line. I recommend the Easy Fire line of enamels because they are so "easy" to use! They can all be mixed, so I suggest telling him to get you black and white and as many colors as are in your budget all in 1 oz sizes until you can play and see what you want your color palette to be. Merry Christmas to you! Cheryl
