"How do I get better at dopping my opals?" This is one of our most frequently asked questions. When I first started dopping opals using dopping wax I watched everything I could find on the subject and never really felt like I had a good grasp of the finer aspects of how to dop opals in mass and at speed. In this video we try to cover all of the most commonly asked questions about Dopping Australian Opals. We also include a lot of tips and tricks that you can use to make your stones stick better and faster. I always just wanted to see somebody dopping a bunch of opals, as well as showing me how, so I've included a bit of that at the end as well. PLEASE ONLY TRY THESE TECHNIQUES WITH STABLE AUSTRALIAN OPALS OR OPALS WITH VERY LOW WATER CONTENT.
