Re: My letters scratch away when i try copper glassgilding

Hello Andrew, Thank you very much for your answer. I wish I could use red gold instead, but the color seems very different and not as red/pink as copper is. I used for my tests Nazdar back up paint from AS Handover just as you said + a little bit of hardener. It actually works if extra care taken wh...
