    Certain Ancient Greek statues of great prestige were chryselephantinei. Apparently, you put in your order and you hoped for the best. The piece of metal thus covered is exposed to heat, and then quenched in water. They had long been popular in China, as the unglazed stoneware is said to improve the taste of tea.

    Tschirnhaus invents large lenses capable of concentrating enough heat to melt Chinese porcelain. Marco Polo first brought it to Europe, from China, in the fourteenth century: a small gray-green jar amid his bounty of silk brocades, spices, and vials of musky scents. Augustus thought it wise to keep an alchemist to himself, and the best way to do so was under lock and key. Gold crowns also cause the least wear on the opposing tooth. Rhodium compounds are used to improve the binding to the substrate.

    For small delicate figures, a pen or a fine brush may be used for laying on the ether solution. When von Tschirnhaus died suddenly, on 11 Octoberthe project came to a halt. Other gilding processes involved using the gold as pigment in paint: the artist ground the gold into a fine powder and mixed it with a binder such as gum arabic. If a crown uses a combination of these alloys, at least 40 percent must consist of gold. But de Waal can also be a slippery writer, disinclined to build toward a larger argument. The first involves gold leaf, which is gold that is hammered or cut into very thin sheets.

In the preparation of the amalgam, the gold must first be reduced to thin plates or grains, which are heated red-hot, and thrown into previously heated mercury, until it begins to smoke. Processes[ edit ] Modern gilding is applied to numerous and diverse surfaces and by various processes; those used in modern technology are described in gold plating.
