Keum-Boo on Silver: Techniques for Applying 24k Gold to Silver


The book covers all aspects of Keum-boo, an ancient Korean technique in which thin sheets of gold are fused to silver.  For metalsmiths, non-metalsmiths and those who work in PMC, the techniques described in this book provide a simple and relatively inexpensive way to add the luster of gold to silver work.  This book provides an excellent guide for beginners, and for the more advanced, Celie demonstrates applying the gold to large, hollow forms, and to complex shapes.
