Notes on White colour range (from Thompson Workbook)

> 1006 Crackle Base White: 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 Undercoat White: 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
> 1020 Titanium White: A super opaque titania white with excellent covering power, gloss and surface. Excellent one coat of two coat white for areas to be left white. Since its expansion is on the low side, only thin coats of other colours 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 Foundation White: 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 & camaieu techniques
> 1040 Quill White: This white is less opaque than 1030 Foundation White. It is translucent. It can be used as an undercoat and is acid resistant. It can be used over 1010 Undercoat White 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 Foundation White
> 1050 Mat White: This mat enamel fires as a normal transparent. It glosses on first firing and will grow mat white crystals. With longer or more firings it will texture greatly
> 1055 White: This white is very opaque. It was developed for the commercial badge making industry
> 1060 White: This white is very opaque. It was also developed for the commercial
