Thank you, Mark, for that attempt, but the companies you listed have
nothing to do with vitreous enamels. And, yes, I do know that the
Aoki enamels haven’t been manufactured for many years, but, if they
have been stored properly, then they would still be viable.
So, once again, I am asking the Orchidian community to help me find
someone who has a stash of Aoki 105-B, Red for Silver that she/he
has decided to divest of and/or is willing to sell some. I would
need only a few ounces, though more would be lovely, too.
I’m asking this here as I believe our community is so large that
there must be someone out there who knows someone who knows someone
who knows someone (you get the idea) who has this enamel color and
is willing to give up some of it. So, if you can, spread the word,
mention my inquiry, and, who knows, I might actually find some of it
(I did actually hear the other day of someone who has 2 pounds of
it, but is reluctant (read that as “unwilling”) to sell any of it. 2
pounds!!! That would last me well into the next life! Oh well…
