Also, I have been trying to do depletion gilding. I can’t tell much
difference before or after the process. I am not heating up the
acids, which may be part of the problem. What I am doing is:
1st. I pickle the piece in sparex. 2nd I put the 22k in nitric acid
[I have been using a premade product from Rio ] perhaps I should mix
new. 3rd After rinsing I put the piece in Sulfuric. I would think
that I would have bright a pure gold look but I see no real
difference. After I enamel my 1st layer I have really black
oxidation on the piece. I would think that this would be gone.
Anyone have any advise?
So If anyone can help me with the gold alloy or my depletion
problems or my enamel issues I would be very grateful.
