well i made some recently with red gold palladium and silver i did
everything wrong and it still worked! but, if you melt and roll your
palladium dont use actelyne i hear the carbon will make it brittle.
there are more than a couple ways to skin this cat so if you dont
have the money for tool wrap dont use an electric kiln use a gas
setup and hide glue to protect the edges from atmosphreic intrusion.
good luck- goo
