I am considering taking a job that is outside of what I usually do.
The customer has an old statue of Jesus that they want to give to
their church but he is missing his filigree like crown. At first I
said that I don’t work with brass, but they are super nice people and
it might be an interesting project. I have never made anything with
brass, only precious metals. I’m imagining that I would use silver
solder to assemble the whole thing and then have it plated to cover
up the solder? I can’t think of a yellow solder I could use other
than gold to avoid having it plated. I’m not even sure that brass is
the best choice, it’s just what the customer suggested. So if anyone
has experience making a larger brass object that requires assembling,
I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.
