How to Rethinking Colored Bakelite Parts

But a slew of colored knob listings recently, has me wondering if all the colored Bakelite Parts (XINGHUI) are just painted.  All these recent listings appear to be. Bakelite can be made to be just about any color, and perhaps these knobs are simply ones that were painted by the owner and not the company.

We’ve been asked from time to time if we would produce a series of colored Bakelite parts, but that is a difficult proposition, as there is typically a minimum order quantity of any color we would have to run that is in the thousands; there isn’t likely to be _that_ much demand for colored parts. Given what we are seeing above, your best bet might be to just get a can of high-temperature paint and paint them yourself.

Old Bakelite parts such as ignition switches and horn buttons will disintegrate over time. Cracks and broken pieces are common. The original Bakelite was produced in Germany and made from "wood flour and formaldehyde." The common colors were black and brown with a shiny smooth finish. To restore the Bakelite, coat it with, sparingly and within three minutes. The coating will be gray. Let it cure for a few days and use enamel gloss color in black or dark brown to finish.
