Upgrading Magical Items.

This may seem like a silly question, but is it possible to upgrade a magical item's quality? My level 12 druid just picked up craft woundrous items because no one in the area sells amulets of natural armor and she really needs more armor. What I'm curious about is, if she makes an amulet of natural armor +3, can she later upgrade it to an amulet of natural armor +4 without having to wipe out the enchantment and start over (thus spending the raw materials and exp cost all over again)? Can she pay the difference in raw materials and exp between the +3 and +4 amulets? Any thoughts on this?

Yep. According to the rules, you just have to pay the difference in cost.

What he said.

Warning, though... It gets ridiculously expensive if you want to stack unrelated enchantments, like "Amulet of Natural Armor and Resistance to Fire" or something.

Weapons seem to stack easier. For example if you want to increase a sword with a +2 bonus to a sword with a total of +3 (+2 and flaming for example) you subtract the original cost (8000) from the new cost (18,000) then pay the difference (10,000) see? Easy. Other items are a little more difficult.

Right, because weapons with a variety of enhancements still do One Simple Thing: smack monsters. Amulets (or other items) with a variety of abilities do Many Different Things...such as fire resistance and natural armor. That can be extremely overpowering, so the difference in ease-of-combining-abilities really makes sense.
