Resin Epola is the most popular lapel pin style. “Misty Cloisonné, Resin Cloisonné, Imitation Cloisonné or Hard Enamel” are the other names used for Resin Epola. Even though some refer to this style as “Imitation Cloisonne”, Resin Epola lapel pins are simply a newer style of pin that was not available years ago. This style pin is extremely high quality and affords the use of any PMS color, which the traditional Cloisonne style does not. It is a fabulous alternative to cloisonné at a more reasonable price. Hard enamel pins allow very fine metal detail.
