Accent Gold for Silver™ Paint 1 gram

Accent Gold for Silver ™ (AGS2)

Pure 24K Gold Embellishment - Application and Firing Instructions

This new, improved version of Accent Gold for Silver™ (AGS2) now includes a binder that creates a smooth, creamy, 24K gold paint that is a dream to apply and fuse to articles made from both fired and unfired silver clay, fine silver, sterling silver, and Argentium™ sterling silver.

These instructions are exclusively for AGS2 and do not apply to previous versions of the product. This improved version of Accent Gold for Silver™ is now the easiest, most affordable way to add the pure 24K gold accents to your jewelry creations.

  Surface Preparation

  • Prepare the surface to receive Accent Gold for Silver™ according to the metal used:
  • Fine Silver: Apply a satin finish or pickle to a bright white.
  •  Fired Silver Clay: Apply to white, freshly fired surface or pickle to a bright white.
  •  Silver Clay Greenware: Do all pre-fire finishing. Clay can be dry or partially dry.
  •  Sterling Silver: Depletion gild to a bright white.
  • Argentium™ Sterling: Apply a satin finish or pickle to a bright white.

    Gold Preparation

    After removing the shrink wrap from the Accent Gold for Silver™ container, tap the jar on a flat surface to gather the gold at the bottom of the container. Add 12 drops of distilled water and 4 drops of glycerine to the Accent Gold for Silver™ powder using the provided dropper. Mix the liquid into the powder by agitating the container quickly back and forth. It takes just a few seconds to fully wet the dry ingredients. The material will tend to gather into a blob when completely mixed. Light patches on the surface are unincorporated gold powder. Agitate until the material is fully wetted. Use a wetted #3 Red Sable paintbrush to stir the gold mixture and test the consistency.

    The consistency you are aiming for is a smooth and creamy paint. It should not be runny. If the mixture is too thick, add water one drop at a time and stir with the paintbrush. If the mixture is thin and drippy, allow it to sit open for a few minutes to evaporate some of the water. The consistency can be somewhat thick or a little thin and be applied successfully once you learn the ideal thickness of the coat.

     

    Application

    Accent Gold for Silver™ can be applied using a paint brush, clay shaper or any other tool that you deem usable for this purpose. Paint, draw, daub, or drizzle it on.

    For flat, broad areas, draw, paint or daub using a #3 Red Sable paintbrush. For drizzle designs or to draw, try a Clay Shaper. I like the Flat Chisel shape for the precise line I can get. The chisel edge also works well as a squeegee for the gold container, and because the tip is silicone, the gold flakes off for easy recovery.

    Apply in one or two even coats, drying thoroughly between coats. Accent Gold for Silver™ will not bond properly if the gold is not completely dry.

    The gold layer should be applied sufficiently thick that the silver below cannot be seen through the gold. The gold layer should be even and fully opaque, however if the gold is applied too thickly, it will fail to bond properly. The layer should be about as thick as 2 pieces of paper.

    Make sure the edges of your gold design are sharp and crisp. Where the material is not thick enough, it will partially alloy into the silver and appear very pale. If the material puddles in crevices, spread it out for an even coat.

    Firing

    Torch Firing: Fine Silver, Silver Clay Greenware, Sterling and Argentium™ Silver

    Heat until the silver glows dull salmon and the gold glows bright orange. Hold for 2 minutes.

    Kiln Firing: Silver Clay Greenware

    Items are placed on a kiln shelf and inserted into and removed from the kiln while its at it's target temperature, so be prepared with a firing glove and tongs for fast insert and removal. Kiln tongs are a great accessory for moving a kiln shelf in and out of the kiln safely and quickly. Fire for 20 minutes in a pre-heated kiln at any temperature between 1110F and 1650F.

    Finishing

    It's important to compact the fired surface very well and a curved burnisher is very good tool for the job. After compacting or "burnishing" the surface, you can polish and buff or tumble. 24K gold is very soft and easily abraded. Do not use aggressive abrasives or files. Use only polishing grits.

    Design

    Tips

    Accent Gold for Silver™ is best on smooth, flat or low relief surfaces. It is difficult to burnish tight areas after firing, so extures with fine lines are not a good choice for adding AGS as the gold tends to "clog" up the lines and obliterate detail.

    Try stick-on type templates as a mask to apply Accent Gold for Silver™ in intricate patterns and designs. For best results, set the template on a flat surface, burnish to seal the edges. Apply AGS with a brush in 2 even coats. Don't worry if the old gets on the template, it will be recovered later. After the second coat has dried, peel off the template over a piece of

    lean white paper to catch the bits the will flake off of the template. The pattern will come away clean leaving dried gold on 

     the template surface. Scrape the dried bits back into the container to recycle.

    For metal clay greenware, check the manufacturer's firing schedule for the clay you want to use. If it can be properly sintered in 20 minutes at any temperature between 1110F and 1650F, it is a good candidate for co-firing. You'll also have to determine if the item you wish to make is suitable for a shorter firing. The longest, hottest firing recommended for co-firing is 20 minutes at 1650F, which is decent firing for strength. If you feel the item you want to add gold to needs a longer firing you'll have to fire your silver first and then add Accent Gold for Silver™ to the freshly fired surface and torch fire for 2 minutes or kiln fire for 20 minutes at 1110F. Firing beyond 20 minutes in a kiln will result in partial alloying of the gold into the silver. If the firing is too short, the bond will not be complete. 

     

    S

    torage

    Keep the jar tightly closed when not using to keep the product hydrated. If you do not plan to use the paint regularly, check the moisture content of Accent Gold for Silver™ every week or so when not using and add a drop of two of water as needed 

     to keep it hydrated. Any bits of dried gold from a brush or any other tool you use can be added back into the Accent Gold for Silver™ container and recycled.

    If the material ever dries out completely, just add a couple of drops of water and allow it to sit for a minute or two to rehydrate.

    An Angle Chisel Clay Shaper works great for scraping down the sides of the container without losing any material. Allow the gold to dry on the Clay Shaper, then scratch the dried bits back into the jar with your fingernail to recycle.

    Mineral Accents refers to a line of cubic zirconia (CZ) crystals and minerals offered by Jewelry Material Innovations, Inc. (JMI) in a variety of colors for adding enhancements to silver and gold jewelry settings. They are prepared from large pieces of by a proprietary process that yields small particles suitable for inlaying into jewelry settings. The particles exhibit high reflectivity and sparkle because of the many facets created by the fracturing process. They are available in a wide range of colors that span the visible spectrum. It is recommended that they be inlaid into recessed regions of jewelry settings so that the sides of the recessed regions provide protection against abrasion. A number of methods exist for attaching Mineral Accents to jewelry, as described JMI's information sheet titled Instructions for Attaching Mineral Accents to Silver Clay Settings.
    Mineral Accents can be applied to both fine and sterling silver settings. If a method of attachment to sterling silver is used that involves heating the sterling piece above about 840F (450C), a dark layer, or fire scale, may form that will require subsequent removal. Depletion gild the sterling piece using any method of attachment that requires a high temperature. Doing this eliminates the need to remove fire scale after Mineral Accents have been attached.
    The lustrous sparkle of Mineral Accents in colors of your choosing can be used to create strikingly beautiful effects in both silver and yellow gold jewelry. Mineral Accents can add a custom drusy look to your jewelry. Moreover, they are more affordable than color-coated drusy specimens, do not require forming your jewelry around pre-shaped cabochons, and are available in a wider range of colors. For a complementary effect in the same jewelry setting, consider combining different colors of Mineral Accents. They will challenge your artistic imagination and provide you with a distinctive new medium with which to set your jewelry apart from the norm.

    Mineral Accents can be applied to both fine and sterling silver settings. If a method of attachment to sterling silver is used that involves heating the sterling piece above about 840F (450C), a dark layer, or fire scale, may form that will require subsequent removal. Depletion gild the sterling piece using any method of attachment that requires a high temperature. Doing this eliminates the need to remove fire scale after Mineral Accents have been attached.
    The lustrous sparkle of Mineral Accents in colors of your choosing can be used to create strikingly beautiful effects in both silver and yellow gold jewelry. Mineral Accents can add a custom drusy look to your jewelry. Moreover, they are more affordable than color-coated drusy specimens, do not require forming your jewelry around pre-shaped cabochons, and are available in a wider range of colors. For a complementary effect in the same jewelry setting, consider combining different colors of Mineral Accents. They will challenge your artistic imagination and provide you with a distinctive new medium with which to set your jewelry apart from the norm.
