This is the first time I’ve tried to make a 14k rose gold alloy. I
used these proportions:
58.5% gold, 32.5% copper, 9% silver
It turned out workable but not very pink, more like a pale yellow
gold. I used copper electric wire for the copper: would that have
some other stuff mixed in with it that would affect the colour? What
forms of copper work best? How can I tell how pure the copper is?
Any suggestions for other recipes that would turn out more red/pink
and workable to draw into wire?
