What is hard enamel pins?

Hard enamel pins are long lasting and durable with a very high quality appearance. The craft is a multi-step enamel process used to produce jewelry, vases, and other decorative items. For hard enamel, the enamel is added before the plating. The enamel powder is added and then stone-polished flat to the same level as the metal die lines. Each color must be baked in the oven one by one which adds to the process and cost. Once all the colors have been added then the badge can be electroplated and polished again to complete the badge. The numerous polishing processes is why the badge can achieve slightly less detail than soft enamel and why some of the metal lines are likely to spread in production and be thicker than the original design. Our hard enamel process is a modern process of the traditional hard enamel process and the main difference between our hard enamels is the actual enamel.
