Thank you Cynthia, Grace, Kelley, and artsy girl (sorry don't know
your real name),
I purchased my Argentium from Hoover and Strong, which is the place
were Cynthia gets her silver, I believe, so the composition should
be correct! I don't normally use flux when balling up sterling so I
didn't think to use it with Argentium, however it is apparently a
great aid with Argentium. The below process is what I did and it
I filed the wire a bit and sprayed it with some Prip's flux. When I
heated it, I held the torch back a little more than normal and it
balled up beautifully. I also tested it with some old Handy flux and
that worked too!!!
Thanks for all the input!!!!
