Info from Thompson Enamel...

All 80 mesh enamel products are numbered into a practical coded numbering system which indicates enamel type and color. This coding can be easily seen by examining our color charts in the printed catalog and online. The thousands number indicates enamel type while the hundreds number indicates the color. The final two numbers indicate how light or dark that color is. For example, 1505 is an opaque pastel greenish blue for copper, and 2680 is a transparent dark blue for copper.

What are the differences of Thompson’s opaque whites for metal?

Low Acid Resistance

1006 – A low expansion white used as the base coat for the crackle technique when Liquid Form-Water Base enamels are used for the second coat.

1010 – Sold for years as 621-A. It is unique in having a high softening point as well as a high expansion. This makes it an ideal base coat for other enamels, especially transparents. It has good opacity, excellent gloss and surface. Can be used as a regular white where acid resistance is not required.

High Acid Resistance

1020 – A super opaque titanium white with excellent covering power, gloss and surface. This is the white used for our white steel panels. Excellent one coat or two coat white for areas to be left white. Since its expansion is on the low side, only thin coats of other colors should be applied over this white when used on copper. It has good acid resistance. It can also be used as a base for crackle technique.

1030 – This white has medium opacity. It is slightly translucent. It can be used as an undercoat and is acid resistant. When finely ground it is suitable to be used in the grisaille and camaïeu techniques.

1040 – This white is less opaque that 1030. It is translucent. It can be used as an undercoat and is acid resistant. It can be used over 1010 to obtain a surface with more “depth”. When finely ground it is suitable to be used in the grisaille technique, but will require more applications to build up white than the 1030.

1045 – This white was developed for bead making. Normally used in 6-20 mesh, this white does not reduce or gray in a propane flame.

1050 – This mat enamel fires as a normal transparent. It glosses on the first firing and will grow mat white crystals. With longer or more firings it will texture greatly.

1055 – This white is very opaque. It was developed for the commercial badge making industry.

1060 – This white is very opaque and was also developed for the commercial badge making industry.

    DO NOT buy from this shop!!!!! I purchased $120 from this shop. I received $15 of my order 2 weeks later, with NO NOTICE as to the rest of my order. I had to contact them to learn that some of my order had arrived to them damaged, and another item was on back order. Imagine expecting a large order and receiving a small portion with no note? I received one item a month later, and was told the other item would be sent IMMEDIATELY after they received it the following week. I received the last item today, exactly TWO MONTHS after placing my order. No note. No explanation or apology. I have been in business a long time and completely understand that "stuff' happens, but this it not the way to do business. I am certainly not a valued customer! This company is SO unprofessional. Do yourself a favor and buy from someone else!

    Hi Paula, I appreciate your feedback. I communicated with you via Etsy communication as soon as you placed your order about the items that would be missing because of my mistake. I communicated with you about the liquid enamel that was not only back ordered but pulled from the Thompson enamel shelves for their price increase. I unfortunately had no control over how long it would take for Thompson to sell liquid enamel at their new price to the public and their distributors. I communicated with you that this could take several weeks and asked if you would prefer a refund. You told me you would prefer to wait. I’m very sorry for the severe delay and disappointment in order. Thank you again for your feedback and I will do better in the future. Thank you
