Sheesh, folks, gimme a break!
I would never knowingly mislead a customer about what I'm selling,
or anything else. I got flamed off-line for not being overly worried

defraud will try to do it, and lecturing ethical people will not
change that. Lecturing unethical people won't change it either, come
I call it "cold enamel" or "epoxy enamel" or "resin enamel" because
1) it looks a lot like traditional enamel in that opaque to
transparent colored material is laid into metal in ways that mimic
enamel, and 2) because, as I said, I used enamel powder to color the
epoxy. (Why? Because that was the way I learned, and I had it
available.) Call it Duckbill Farbling if you want to! Either way,
you still have to educate the customer. I have seen people selling
work made this way without explaining what it really is. Do I
approve? Heck, no!
I sometimes work in traditional enamels as well. And, as I think I
said, I haven't done "epoxy enamel" in years. All I did was answer a
question for somebody, and ask that we not go through exactly this,
which has been flogged on this forum before ad nauseum. But feel
free, I'll open wide and you can all jump down my throat. I only
ask, "let he who is without fault cast the first stone."
