Keum-boo on Silver book by Celie Fago

Revised and Expanded Edition

Now 64 pages (16 pages added), 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.

This expanded edition, with over 90 color photos, includes tips for cutting the gold, more information on burnishing tools and on the Keum-boo process itself. The revised section on heat sources compares a torch and various hot plates and introduces the reader to the UltraLite kiln, a tool perfectly suited for keum-boo.
