I am trying to remove some dents from a sterling silver object.
As this is a closed object, I cannot get in behind to planish out
The dents are about 2mm x 4mm in 22 ga sterling
Someone suggested that I epoxy copper “handles” into the dents, and
once the epoxy is cured, pull the handles out to pop out the dents.
This seemed like a good suggestion to me, but I have tried it a few
times without success. The epoxy does not bond the copper and silver
together strongly enough to pull the dent out.
The copper handle just comes off with no movement of the silver.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a method to remove these dents?
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good epoxy that would give a
better bond between the copper and silver so that I can try the
copper handle method again?
