Cyanide/peroxide Bombing of jewelry


I cam across the term: 'bombing' in finishing jewelry. Please could you kindly explain what bombing is all about and how it can be performed.

Hello Joseph,

Maybe some one can help you out on this site, otherwise I'd try You'll find "orchid digest and archives" there. You can post your question there, but beware, it is not like's site, as you will receive everybody's posts for the day in your email's inbox. I subscribed for 1 day but couldn't take it after that (deleting over 150 letters is cumbersome).

Good luck,

Aluminium shot blasting to produce a matte satin effect is called bombing.
