Enamel may be white or coloured, (NO gold over) and must be applied in the traditional manner - NO sponging etc.
Enamel can be used to enhance the dry dusting or as a border to complement the design. Dry Dusting must not be confused with 'flow enamel' as in mosaic decoration.

❖ NO bubbles, chipped or crazed enamel.
❖ Look for smooth flowing tails on scrolls, even or graded dots.
❖ If the enamel has spread and lost its form, the effect will be poor.
❖ Does the use of enamel enhance the piece?
❖ Dusting must be obvious to the judges.
❖ Dusting is an enhancement to a subject and gives an aura or glow, sometimes adding depth of glaze but not necessarily extra value.
Porcelain may be chosen from a wide range of shapes and styles and the design should complement this shape. Dusting and enamel should look comfortable together and enamel not have the appearance of an 'after thought'.
