2017 - Gold Applications, Part 2: Doublée and Gold Painting

0.00

This paper is a continuation of the 2016 paper on gold applications and keum boo. It examines Doublée (one version of small studio-based approaches to fusing gold and silver sheet to make affordable gold surfaces for designing) and gold painting.

Gold painting offers a series of low-cost ways of using gold alloys on top of copper, silver, higher melting gold alloys, and platinum and palladium alloys to create patterns and designs. The principles of design using fusion applications of gold alloys onto substrates are defined and organized. This approach gives ways of creating surface patterns using low technology and minimal costs for maximum visual impact. Procedures described include fusion applications: fusion overlay, resist use, incised overlay, fusion inlay, control factors and mixtures of each approach. Gold painting, as addressed here, can be exploited in a production situation, creating reproducible surface effects on a range of host metals. A clear, comprehensive and unique design system is revealed.
