It's a handmade cloisonné lapel pin, in the shape of a full croissant in two or three shades of brown/orange (similar to the favicon), with three individually optional lines of black text below: "halfbakery", a (short) tagline of your choice, and your [username].

Wear it in places where you're likely to see other halfbakers, for example: Halfbakery meetups, hackerspaces/makerspaces, Maker Faire, inventors' conferences (if those exist), the patent office, maybe hacking conferences, England, Canada.

I've been wanting to learn cloisonné for a couple of years, but unfortunately I don't have the time or money at the moment.

Cloisonné https://en.wikipedi...wiki/Cloisonn%C3%A9
Not invented by someone french ... [8th of 7, Mar 19 2018]

       I remember making an enameled badge at school. From what I remember it wasn't complicated. Just paint the enamel powder onto the brass plate and cook in a kiln. I vaguely remember a few trips through the kiln to apply more adjacent colour.

       It's a bit more complicated than that; cloisonné requires the attachment of fine strips of metal, or sometimes a type of bas-relief engraving, of the image on the substrate, the cells so created being then filled with enamel before firing.

       The way I remember it a raised ridge is not strictly necessary so long as the water has been driven out of at least one region so they don't bleed together. But if you're right, its a milling 3D print of a substrate and application of color.   

       Don't mention Robertsons.

       Why is this better than going about dressed as a giant croissant?

       At that suggestion, you quickly turn on your heel and reveal your alternative smelly fish view.

       // alternative smelly fish view //   

       That is a singularly poor choice of phraseology.   

       Thankfully, we are not even a little bit french, so that option (which is, by the way, particularly suspect and disgusting) is unavailable to us, or indeed any members of your species familiar with the concept of "washing", often involving a type of surfactant known as "soap".   

       We will not expect an immediate riposte as we accept that you will need to consult Wikipedia to familiarize yourself with these strange concepts.
