Accent Blue Gold is a solid 11K intermetallic compound comprised of pure 24K gold combined with other metals. Its color is natural and permanent.
It is used in the form of a powder that is mixed with water to form an aqueous paste, or slip. After the slip has been applied to an article and then air dried, the article is fired in activated carbon to form a sintered layer that, when burnished and then polished, revealing the beautiful blue gold can be readily applied to all varieties of silver clay: fine, sterling, 960, and flex. It can also be applied to cast and wrought jewelry of all shapes, both on flat surfaces and regions of detailed design. The preferred method of finishing is burnishing followed by tumbling.
