As always on the hunt for kyratisation candidates pieces, I got this 1860s French (crab mark) "émaux bressans" brooch.
4cm by 3.5cm, domed.
One piece of enamel lacking... little enamel damage around the lady's portrait...
My now favorite trick, the crimpled tinfoil was used to create a filling for the lacking piece.
Green permanent marker covered with "Judikins Diamond Glaze", tiny silver ring for the blue cab bezel.
Gold decorations with diluted "rub'n buff" patina, red marker dots, white posca pen dots, tiny gold nail art balls and finally a doming finish with diamond glaze.
Et voilà! :-)
