I have some 24 kt. bought not six months ago because someone wanted a
wedding ring in a day set with gradient coloured square sapphires.
(roll, cut, wet joints, palette knife to blend join, stick stones in
place, set in dish of alumina, fire in kiln 2 hours at 1830 and
voila- brainless, looks ancient, and is done in 5 hours....) It is
still made and I understand that Mitsubishi is considering, or has
released a platinum version as well
Richard - The platinum metal clay is only available in Japan and has
not been sold in the US. As for gold availability - I think it
depends on the stockpile of the source. I had some 24 kt available
until 4 months ago. But I'm sold out now and will have to restock
with the 22 kt that they are now importing. Not sure I'll really
bother - it's pretty pricey and not a lot of my customers are looking
for the gold - they're quite happy with the silver.
