One of our older students is complaining that her silver is "ruined"
and not reusable because, during casting, flask was too hot and also
that the torch was set too high for the melt. Her casting apparently
did have a lot of fractures in it, so that may have indeed been
true. However, it is my understanding that silver is not “ruined” in
this case, but can be reused as long as you mix it half and half with
new casting grain. Can some of our metallurgists clear this up?
Thanks so much. Emie Stewart
