Gilders Paste is perfect for adding little colorful details to links and charms. In this design I used it as a background color and to bring out the floral details in the links.

Our designers enjoyed playing with Gilders Paste to add color to the metal links in this vintage-style necklace. Gilders Paste can be rubbed into metal and allowed to dry, providing plenty of creative options. This necklace uses purple and blue-green paste with matching crystals for a touch of color and sparkle that complement the antique brass.
