    Quick, simple Gold And Silver home test using face powder

    This is a simple little trick to help you get an idea if a find you made is gold or silver if you are unsure, or unable to locate any markings.
    Take note, this is not a means to test the item by karat. This will just tell you simply if the item is gold, silver or even gold plated. I do this with iffy things I have dug. If they pass this test. I can then burn some gas and take it to the shop to be tested.
    I learned this by just hearing woman complain about how their gold and silver jewelry leaves black marks on their cover up products. So, I started using face powder as a means to get an idea of items since I dont have a scratch acid kit.
    It works.

    The true value of a find, is the value the individual places on it.

    Oh you are good!

    BUT--we talking face POWDER or any "foundation?" e.g. creamy compact; liquid; dry or wet type with sponge?

    You forgot to add to be sure you're totally alone with
    no other males around for a 5-mile radius.
    In this world of trouble and strife,
    bring some peace to someone's life

    First, we know you're not pimpin' makeup, so tell us which brand you use!
    Second, do I have to use my wrist? It'd be way cooler to flex my freshly powdered bicep and rub gold jewelry there.
    Third, do you have any pointers about how to get close enough to women to hear them discussing makeup? I'm not so good at that.
