Aura 22 is a paint-on 22KY Gold paste-like solution. Add 22KY gold accents to PMC. Tiny particles of pure gold (91.6%) are blended with 8.4% fine silver particles to create a precious metal with deep yellow colour 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. Please check out the new Aura information sheets (on the Information Sheet Page
http://www.metalclay.com.au/workshops/workshops_info_sheets.html) for the recommended Metal Clay firing method for Aura 22 and the Keum Boo method for applying Aura 22. These are the application methods used very successfully by many Metal Clay artists.
Imagine liquid 22K gold that can be painted onto fine or sterling silver designs, then fired and burnished to permanently bond the gold to the silver surface. Aura 22 is just that. And, unlike other embellishment processes such as gold electroplating, this remarkable liquid (containing 91.6% pure gold and 8.4% pure silver) requires no special equipment. Simply apply it with a paint brush, creating designs and accents on jewelry as freely and easily as brushing paint onto a canvas. Each package contains 1g of Aura 22 gold solution and a few drops of wetting solution
Please be aware;
• The wetting solution included with your Aura 22 is necessary only to ensure that the gold solution maintains the appropriate consistency; no more than a drop or two is ever needed.
• The gold material that remains caught in your paintbrush when you’ve finished may be recovered and recycled.
