Hello Ganoskin community!
This is my first post here, my name is Ben and I am a graphic designer.
Recently, I have been drawn to the idea of getting produced a simple line of great quality gold plated bangles showcasing wrapped “illustrations” in vivid colours.
There are 2 main references I have been looking at:
- Hermes and their “narrow printed enamel” collections
- Frey Wille collections
I understand that Frey Wille produces hand painted enamel bangles.
I cannot figure out what technique is really being used to create the Hermes bangles.
“Narrow printed” indicates that there’s some print/transfer technique involved, but I do not understand how enamel can be printed. And I can’t see printed paper going into a kiln for firing haha
Some manufacturers have proposed using a coat cold enamel, which is basically resin, over a printed design. That’s not what I would like to settle for.
I am very curious about what you think about the process Hermes is using.
Thank you so much and all the best!
