A BRIEF HISTORY OF CUSTOM HARD ENAMEL PINS
Hard enamel pins were traditionally known as cloisonné pins. Cloisonné is a decorative art practice which involves a time honoured approach of applying colourful enamel to the surface of metal objects as well as fine metals like gold and silver, but also copper as well as stone. The name “cloisonné” comes from the French word “cloison,” which means “partition” or “compartment.” Hard enamel pins are different to our custom soft enamel pins, in that hard enamel is polished smooth and flat, whilst soft enamel have recessed enamel, leaving a more texturd feel. We cover this more in this blog article we created. HARD ENAMEL VS SOFT ENAMEL.
THE METAL BASE FOR CUSTOM HARD ENAMEL PIN BADGES
A metal base design or outline is created, this acts as the canvas or frame for the liquid hot glass enamel to reside in, as mentioned this base can be made from either gold, silver, copper, bronze for higher end products, as well as alloys (which are alloys made from various metals) such as zinc alloy, brass etc.
