This 14-karat rose gold casting grain shows its best full red color in finished pieces that have textured finishes, such as satin, florentine or bright cut. The grain’s high copper gives its rose color but also means that it firescales easily; flux well, use a reducing flame or inert atmosphere, and pickle to remove the firescale. The cast metal is very malleable. Casting metal, because it comes ready to melt and pour into your mold, is fast and efficient to use and, because it is professionally produced, you can count on consistent, repeatable quality and composition over time.
Sold by the pennyweight (dwt.), minimum purchase is 0.2 dwt.
