【How to make scarlet copper】
It is a very difficult technique to fix a special scarlet film originally in copper by heating pure copper that has been polished cleanly to the "limit" and rapidly cooling it in an aqueous solution of borax at a good timing.
It is a natural coloring that does not use a coloring material (coating) such as glaze or paint. Moreover, we do not use beeswax, abrasives etc at all for finishing.
<A word from a writer>
In this work, considering the familiarity of the fingers, the inside of the ring is made into the inner shell, or if the engraved part is caught, it is removed and finished up. The surface is hammered with a hammer, and a hammer eye is added. Polish up with a buffing machine until it shines shiny.
Finally it will be a scarlet copper work.
The melting point of copper is 1083 ° C, and the surface is covered with a fire at a temperature close to 1,000 ° C.
It will naturally melt if baked too much. We need technology to make color uniform.
The best red is a very difficult technology.

· State of fire
· Where to fly (Condition of fire on copper plate)
· Identify the color of the metal just before the melting point
