What Product Could Temporarily Paint a Sterling Silver Piece to Look Like Gold?

What Product Could Temporarily Paint a Sterling Silver Piece to Look Like Gold?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I have a sterling silver piece that a friend wants to wear for one event then make to look gold for another event in the same day.

Could you recommend a product she could paint on her piece that would dry quickly and be able to be removed after?

Thank you,

    Why not try gold nail polish?

  • Louise says:

    Yes was just going to suggest gold nail polish, I did it and worked great

  • Lynn Callahan says:

    I was going to suggest Gold Nail polish as well. I use it all the time in my jewelry making, and if you want to remove it, it comes right off with polish remover…very inexpensive and looks great!

  • Debra Lowe says:

    Nail polish for sure, also “Rub n Buff” works great and comes in different metallic hues, also removable with acetone polish remover~

    Try gold alcohol ink

    Alcohol ink

    Vintaj has some awesome patina products in many colors including metal colors. Made to bond to metals, not sure if it can be removed? I have used it a lot and it wears really well.

  • Lisa says:

    Gilder’s paste! For permanent, you’d seal it. For one night, it’ll last and then clean off.

  • Carol says:

    I accidentally got some Vintage on a piece of chain. Didn’t notice until the next day, and it does not come off, even with jewelry cleaner.

  • Jeanne Barrett says:

    Acrylic metallic paint will cover well and is removable with water.
