Looking for a product to blacken recessed areas of gold plated
Hi. I recently started gold-plating some jewelry pieces. The problem
is that they lose their three-dimensional effect, as the recessed
areas are the same bright gold color as the higher spots.
Is anyone aware of any product that works to blacken the
lower/recessed are as on gold-plated pieces other than black paint?
Some of the spaces are too narrow to paint with black paint. I need
something that I can apply and then remove from the high spots. I’ve
used liver of sulphur successfully on bare metals, but I’m sure it
won’t work on gold-plated pieces.
