Has anyone tried enameling on Argentium?
Not on Argentium, but on the hardenable silver produced by Johnson
Matthey. What I found was that enamelling hardened the metal, and it
also started a process of age hardening. This lead to the pieces
cracking 3 - 6 months after they were made, i.e. long enough after
manufacture for them to have been sold.
It may be possible that the my designs contributed to the cracking
and that, for instance counter enamelling wound have prevented the
problems. But I would be very very wary of using an alloy of this
type with out extensive and long term testing.
If any one is interest I will put some photos of the cracked pieces
on my website over the weekend.
