    Is arrived few days ago, frame Juncker and core W&L.
    I like It so much; for me, but is a personal opinion, not easy to find one Juncker "hand frosted".

    Stunning cross Massimo! It's no secret I love these crosses with hand applied frosting enhanced by the patina on the frames.

    This is probably a very stupid question, but please indulge me

    Hand frosting on EK's, how was it done and what was used?

    That's a good question!

    Very basically........

    The frosting on these early crosses was made from a combination of different chemicals and was painted on using a brush or a frosting 'stick'. This accounts for the fairly untidy appearance of the application. Don't forget that when it was applied, it was put onto a brand new shiny cross and the rough lines wouldn't show so much as they do after the patina has developed.

    Later crosses were frosted using a Rhodium dip. The frames were immersed in a bath of Rhodium, this stuck to the frames and was allowed to dry. Later the frames were burnished to a shine leaving the frosting on the beading and in alot of cases around the edges, the suspension and ribbon rings. This is very noticable on Wachtler & Lange crosses. I'll post some examples a bit later on.

    If anyone can add to or correct anything above please do so!

    Thanks guys.
    The hand frost solution is most fast then the "frost bath", bcause we don't protect by special paper the core.
    But the bath is sligty acid and if arrive directly on contact with the frame, scratch the balck paint.
    Solution: re-paint on the core with black spray but w/out protection ---->we have a black frame.
    When the people hand paint directly the frame no core repaint but a no good frost quality protection.

    Cheers

    Thank you for the replies guys,

    I had often heard about hand frosting and seen it on examples but really had no idea how it was done, nor what it was that was painted on.

    That is what is so good about this forum, others willing to share their valued knowledge.

    Thanks again,


    Spence
