Dear Orchidians, I am a jeweller from Vicenza in Northern Italy.I am
trying to obtain jewellery with gemstones and enamels. I prepare the
metalwork (yellow gold alloy 18 Kt) annealing and pickling
repeatedly until no discoloration is produced by the annealing
(depletion gilding). When I use green and blu enamels (those that I
have tried till now ) I get good colors. I obtain good results also
in enamel finishing. The question is that I am not able to finish
the no enamelled metallous surface; it remains always crinkled even
if subsequently I use deburring blocks , polishing paste (rouge) and
finally “diamantine” pasta.This happens also on silver (sterling)
surface.Do You have any suggestion?
Thank You very much for Your help.!
