Hardening metal


#1

I have several designs with copper, brass, and silver. I make the
designs with soft metal. Glass is also a component of the design.
How can I harden the metal so the glass and metal don’t get ugly.
The metal holds in the glass, not fused into the glass. I have an
electric kiln. The designs are not like an earing post that you can
twist.

Hi Carol, You can harden pieces in a tumbler with stainless steel
shot…I tumble fused glass and wire wrapped pieces …it works
well.

Hope this helps.
Take care…Patty
