I have a huge collection of costume earrings. I remake jewelry
(mostly for myself). A lot of them are made by not-so-amateur
jewelers. Some of the more recent ones are made of a cheap metal
and/or what looks like brass and then painted. Not shiny. I wear
these so much some of them have become chipped. Could anyone tell me
what paint is most likely to be used? Does it need to be fired? I
realize most of you are professional or semi-professional and don’t
fool with “costume jewelry”, but perhaps you can give me a clue. I
have some other issues to address if anyone has the time or
inclination to answer me.
Thanks so much!
