As easy as plating, with colors that rival enamels, this exclusive nano-ceramic electro-coating material delivers the best of both worlds! Pieces treated with Kliar e-coating never lose the look, feel and sound of the metal that is at their core. Suitable for any conductive metal, e-coating is ideal for coloring or decorating all kinds of jewelry items. Pieces coated with e-coatings become hypoallergenic and tarnish-resistant.
Follow the same steps you would to merely plate your jewelry piece (just use a higher voltage; see instructions), then cure the coating with a short stay in a curing kiln or oven. The nano-ceramic particles bond to the metal, creating a brilliantly colorful overlay that is as durable as it is beautiful.
The metal you choose to start with will significantly affect the final color of your piece (the sample disc shown is sterling silver). You can also achieve a wide variety of hues and tones by varying the voltage and duration of your coating step.
• Coatings can wear thin over time, depending on how the coated jewelry is cared for and maintained, and may need to be re-applied.
• Normal shelf life of the coating solution is approx. 8 months. During storage, the nano-ceramic solution may thicken or develop small lumps. If this happens, simply filter the solution through a fine mesh before using.
