Recycling Reticulated Silver

Hi there! Just curious if I can melt down and recycle the silver that has been reticulated for things like water casting or creating a new sheet. Would there be any issues with firescale or staining. I am guessing I would need to add new metal as it has been heated more than normal.

The metal I reticulated is sterilium, so a sterling alloy and it seems to tarnish pretty badly and it is harder to get off than if it wasn’t reticulated and sometimes it doesn’t come off at all in small spots.

Thanks so much Nicolina
