At your suggestion, I tried granulation with Argentium granules on Argentium sheet. the Argentium granules worked very well and the window of opportunity is quite wide in that I did not melt any granules even when the sheet metal looked close to meltdown. I heated (torch) the sheet until a small amount of surface melting occurs. It is not the flash of fine silver but a slight liquid look. Also, I decided to add more granules to already fused granules (in case one falls off can another one be added later) and that worked very well. I hope others will try this because it is much easier than with silver/copper granulation as well as fine silver fusing.
I am so excited to hear how well granulation worked with Argentium
Sterling! I wonder if you are in the mood for one more experiment? I
am wondering whether/how fine silver granules would work with
Argentium Sterling sheet—since fine silver granules are
commercially available, that could be handy for people who are not
accustomed to making their own granules.
