I made up a 14 Kt. pendant for a gentleman, 4 years ago or so,
it had some polished raised areas and he wanted it black in the
recessed pattern areas. I used a black lacquer. Well, he never
took it off, to bed, in the shower etc… Said he only took it
off for chest exrays. A retired physican. Well of course that
didn’t last. So any suggestions?
I am an enamelist, but this piece won’t hold up in kiln for the
kind of enamel I usually use. Fired at 1450 degress F… It
would be all firescale and the whole thing would take too long to
clean up. I got the old lacquer off.
Epoxy? The recessed pattern is too fine to get in there with
any tool, except gravers, can I scratch it up to give it more
tooth to hold the epoxy? Need suggestions. Quick, as I told him
I would do it this week. Thanks in advance, Pat
