I just got in the mail the new book by Celie Fago called “Keum-Boo
on Silver: Techniques for Applying 24K Gold to Silver.”
It’s a small book, only 48 pages, but it is in color. She covers
Keum-Boo, depletion gilding, rolling your own foil, and additional
related topics, including some relevant to working with metal clay.
It’s very, very good. I heartily recommend it to anyone interest in
trying the technique. Or even if you already know how, it’s a good
reference to have, and it’s the only one!
