Gilder's Paste! I'd been longing to play with it, and was lucky enough to participate in a bulk buy with one of my Jewelry Artist Network friends. I got 10 small containers of the paste, assorted colors.
I found that it is quite smelly and very messy. After experimenting on a few etched pieces of metal, I applied the Bronze Gilder's paste to this etched copper piece I had hanging around the bench. I used a toothpick and wore my magnifying glasses so that I wouldn't smear it everywhere!
I haven't sprayed any sealer on this piece, and I will wear it a lot and see how durable the paste is.
Experiments, Baby steps~~Bliss!
Have a blessed week all!
