I love the look of gold and silver, eventually I will work with
solid white and yellow gold if possible. Today I use only keum boo
and bi-metal. I am interested being able to add gold to more textured
surfaces which is not easy with keum boo. I am also looking for a
cost effective way to do this.
My questions are:
Is pen plating vs. masking areas and doing regular plating better
for the one woman studio?
What do I need to know to ensure I understand and correctly apply
the gold? I ordered the Rio Grande DVDs and Midas Book to help me
learn but would value your input.
What is the difference in thickness of the gold application
between plate, bi-metal, and keum boo? (FYI I learned keum boo with
the dvds by Christine Deihn which are fabulous).
If I use 22K bi-metal I list the piece as being 22K Gold,
Sterling Silver, etc. Is this correct?
Looking forward to your valuable responses!
