This 48 page book is the first to cover all aspects of Keum-boo, an ancient Asian metalworking technique in which thin sheets of pure gold are fused to fine silver (both conventional and PMC) and to sterling. Even if you don?t have metal working skills, the Keum-Boo on PMC techniques Celie's developed provide a simple and relatively inexpensive way to add the luster of gold to silver work.
For the more advanced, Celie demonstrates applying the gold to large, hollow forms, and to complex shapes.
Learn step by step instruction for making your own coil cover, cutting the gold foil with scissors, a craft knife, and paper punches, burnishing it on to the heated silver, finishing and patina, and creating your own texturing tools. Find out about sources for the gold, different thicknesses of foil, using and maintaining tools and many other tips for mastering the ancient art of Keum-boo.
