The alloy formula I was given at a Mendocino granulation workshop is as
75% fine gold, 19% fine silver, and 6% electrolytic copper.
The glue solution is as follows:
Mix a teaspoon of gum of tragacanth powder with a quart of distilled water
and let sit for a day. It will get thick. In a gallon jug, mix one part of
the above solution with one part Battern's flux and three parts distilled
water. There you have it.
(I got this from Dennis J. Arsenis' workshop, to give
credit where credit is due...)
Also, thanks to everyone for the many silver texturing tips, and the info.
on how to restore my mill.
