Hi. Annette. I have a Idea that would satisfy everyone and give you
your workshop. http://www.frii.com/~dnorris/index2.html Don, at the
Academy of Silversmith in Colorado has a online course in Silversmith
which you should be able to adapt to your use.(The link above) If you
click on the radio button for online course he has complete
instructions for Steam casting. I am going to try this myself soon.
Of course you could also take his course online. If you decide to go
this route I would be very interested in the results. Best of luck.
