I like to use sterling silver shot decorations on a lot of my
designs. Could you all give me a few suggestions on the best way to
go about making a large number of shot at a time?
I’ve found I like using charcoal as a forming base because I get a
more consistent and less pitted ball. Is there a trick with using
some other kind of soldering block?
Also, after pickling the shot, is there a better way of
cleaning/sanding the bottoms without sanding off my fingers in the
process? I hand sand with sandpaper and haven’t found a good way to
process tiny bits of shot in prep for soldering.
Thanks in advance,
