Warm the outside layer of the bead, roll it on the leaf and then burnish it on with tweezers or a marver....then put it in the flame....

The better you burnish it, the less that burns away.

Etched bead to shiny again?

Is it possible to make an etched bead shiny again? Would an annealing schedule in the kiln work or do you have to have a higher temperature?
