The commonly held wisdom is don’t. All the research I have seen is
that Argentium is not suitable for enamelling. Not sure of the alloy
components apart from copper & silver, but if there is an element
that vaporises at lower temperature, the enamel will ping off. Much
like it is most difficult to enamel on to 9 carat gold due to the
high zinc content - the zinc vaporises in the kiln and this plus
resulting porosity causes problems.
Similarly the Germanium silver is not suitable for enamelling.
However, if anyone has done the tests, I would love to hear the
Seems like half of my working life is spent removing the firescale
caused by enamelling during the other half!
