Quick Keum-Boo Question

I’m just starting out doing keum-boo, and the only question I have after watching a ton of instructional videos and reading Q&A forums is… should I solder everything together and pickle prior to using the keum-boo technique to apply the 24kt gold foil?

Thank you!

I’m not an expert but have done some keum boo. Definitely all soldering should be finished prior to the application of gold. Soldering temperatures are much higher than temperatures used in keum boo application, and you’d risk destroying that.

Ok, that’s what I figured! It was confusing reading through the existing Q & A because I guess a lot of people are applying the gold prior to soldering which did not make sense to me. Thanks for your help!
