Topics: Swarovski, Foil Backing, Scratches

Q.
I have a foil-backed faceted Swarovski crystal stone that has a few small scratches on the foil back. Is there a way to fix this or at least make the scratches less noticeable?

A.
Rub a similar tone of gold or silver Gilders Paste® into the scratches and then seal with a clear coat of Mona Lisa™ Metal Leaf™ top coat sealant over the scratches or the entire foil back. Follow the link below for instructions on using Gilders Paste.
