The solution to this problem couldnt be easier: make a wire version of the contour you want to flood solder into, and feed it together with your work piece through the rolling mill. This creates clean crisp lines, and can be altered for line variation by forging the wire before rolling.
Gold has been used, and revered, since 5,000 BC. The earliest civilizations measured their worth in gold. Gold drove adventurers to exotic lands, from the Spanish conquistadors in the 15th century to the San Francisco 49ers 400 years later. Even today, it is the most popular material for expensive jewelry. Since pure gold is soft and unsuitable for jewelry, it is mixed with some other metal, usually copper. The resultant alloy's purity is graded in karats (k), which is equivalent to 1/24th purity by mass. Therefore 24k gold is 99.9% pure, 22k gold is 91.6%, 18k gold is 75% pure, etc. American gold jewellery, to be classified as such, must be of at least 10K or 41.7% pure gold.
