In this technique of enamel painting, apart from an outer frame, there are no intermediate bars to separate the enamel colours. The enamel colours are applied freely so that they can run into each other to a greater or lesser extent depending on the type of material used. The base plate is stabilised by a counter enamel. In a variant of enamel painting, the base plate is first covered with a light, usually white layer of opaque enamel, onto which a motif is painted with metal oxide paint and fired. Finally, the work is covered with a colourless enamel layer (excerpt from Wikipedia).
