This 22 karat material is an alloy of 91.7% gold and 8.3% silver, refined into microscopic particles that fuse at relatively low temperatures. This unique combination provides rich yellow color and unusual strength. PMC Gold can be used alone, or as a decorative element on silver items. Consider these possibilities: Co-fire silver and gold PMC side by side Layer silver and gold to make precious metal woodgrain patterns Solder or fuse PMC Gold elements to fabricated and cast items As with silver PMC, you can rehydrate with clean water, and make your own slip from sanding dust. Because Gold PMC has the working properties of PMC3, we suggest that newcomers test ideas in that material.
Aura 22—A New Idea in Gold Embellishment
Concept Tiny particles of pure gold (91.6%) are blended with 8.4% fine silver particles to create a precious metal with deep yellow color and the ability to fuse to silver at relatively low temperatures. The result is a layer of gold that is considerably thicker than possible with electroplating.
Uses: Aura 22 is ideally suited to work with all versions of PMC and metal clay. It can also be used on wrought fine silver and, with care, on sterling that has been properly prepared (see be low). Unlike electroplating, Aura 22 requires no special equipment. Because it can be painted on, Aura 22 offers gestural responses unlike any other gold layering process. It is especially recommended for heavily textured surfaces, and for embellishing areas that would be difficult to cover with alternative techniques. Aura 22 involves almost no waste and a relatively small investment. A one gram package can usually embellish 20-30 objects.
24K Accent Gold for Silver™ Paint This product consists of one gram of pure, 24 K gold powder dispersed in a non-toxic water based liquid medium. It is used to apply gold accent layers to fine silver jewelry articles, including those prepared from silver clay. Accent Gold for Silver™ paint is used by applying it with either a brush or a knife tip to a silver piece, drying, and then heating the piece to bond the gold powder to itself and the silver. After cooling, the gold layer is burnished and the desired final finish is applied
