I'm a sculptor casting unique bronze sculpture and would like to
cast some small work using the Japanese alloy Shibu-ichi. Which
alloy of shibuichi? How much silver in the mix?
I could add:
To help you a little, take a look at a phase diagram such as the one
found in this pdf document:
and choose from a selection of useable alloys from 10% to 70% sil
Note that while the liquidus temps are different, and rise as the
alloy is closer to 100% copper, most (all those between 8.8% and 92%
copper) share a solidus of 778 degC (1432 degF).
Which is about the temperature of my hard solder.
