I would like to add color to my jewelry.  Has anyone tried Swellegant??

I have also been looking at the Vintaj patina and the Gilders Paste.

Any feed back

Swellegant is the Christie Friesen product  - several of my clay friends have used it on both clay and metal with great effect.  I have all three types you mention, but honestly have only experimented with the Gilders paste which usually need to be thinned down with mineral spirits or even alcohol for easy application.  I like the gilder's paste, but am hoping the others are easier to apply. I'd be interested to hear if anyone's used all three types and how they compare  with respect to durability and color retention (I'm assuming they all require a sealant (whether being used on metal or clay).
