There are lots of different types of badges produced from many different materials. Badges may have many purposes; they could be decorative, promotional or for charity work enamel badges. Badges are essentially a picture (logo or product) that may be clipped onto a product of clothing and displayed for many to see. Enamel Badges are just one type but possess a unique look and stand out where some badges do not.

Making an Enamel Badge:

They are not the kind of items you can just make everyday from your home; you will be needing a specialist manufacture to make them. The art of Enamelling may be the fusion of a really thin layer of glass to a steel surface.

First you will need a template for the style you wish to make use of, the template is then manufactured from metal and sprinkled around it with Glass Powder. Glass Powder comes in a wide selection of colours and can be bought from many different places. Find the colours you intend to match your design, then move on to another location step… The metal rack once covered in glass powder will be placed right into a pre-heated oven; the oven must be approximately 1000 degrees in temperature. Leave the badge in the over for approximately 10 – 15 minutes and then remove from the oven. The item must be left to cool-down for quite a long period of time, after it is cool enough to the touch your badge is complete and you have your design.
