| In this tutorial we will be showing you how to create granulation with three small pieces of 18 carat gold. |
You can use any left over pieces of silver or gold. Granulation detail are great for using as organic detail in jewellery or if you want to create a bubble effect. It is easy to create granulation with metals of a lower melting point. If you wanted to create granulation with platinum for example, because of it's high melting point you would have to use a specialised blow torch rather than a standard jewellers blow torch.
