I've been nosing about on the web about this subject for some time. Enameling the dial doesn't present any problem but just how was the lettering done.
On clocks I've come across 2 types. One seems to be painted on but I can't help wondering what type of paint was used. Other better quality one use enamel for the lettering, patterns and face. No sign of anything to keep the them in place during firing either.
Does anybody know of any info on the web on this subject or any info at all.
I've recently come across references to an "enamel paint" that needs firing too but the web has failed to come up with any suppliers.
The only detailed web info I've managed to find gives information on cleaning dirt out of cracks and using a wax to to hide defects more effectively. I'm more interested in making a new dial from scratch.
