In this video we'll talk about the high quality Silverware and Russian Goldplated finishes on the brass focals and stampings sold at B'sue Boutiques. We will discuss how you can build value into your designs by using these materials, and why the gold and silverplated materials cost appreciably more than raw brass, brass ox or chocolate finishes, or rose ox (which is a type of copper plating). We will talk about the value of a high end finish and the difference between that and a DIY, or do it yourself finish. At B'sue Boutiques we have discovered that those who want a plated finish demand the best and are willing to pay a little more for it....but at the same time we have found there is huge interest in applying finishes at home. We totally recommend that you learn to apply color by means of Gilder's Paste, paints, spray varnishes, alcohol inks to develop a look that is totally your own. There are companies out there who have built WHOLE LINES on their own finish; why can't you as a designer purchase the raw brass and design YOUR own look, YOUR own finish? We will get you started and we will tell you how. I constantly am exploring and experimenting with new media that will work with metal. My commitment to you is to share everything I discover wareith you, and offer you the best materials to achieve your creative goals for the least possible price at http://www.bsueboutiques.com. We sell high end, historial solid brass stampings made in the USA from vintage jewelry tooling and our plated finishes are applied by the best plater in the US according to high industry standards. We also offer an increasing line of bare, unplated brass so that you can colorize, patina, torch and apply your own color or finish to metal in your own way.
