Reticulation


#1

Hi, im wondering what is the best ambient temperature for
reticulation? Does anybody have any experience with
this?

Try moving your torch while heating the surface, you will see that the
silver follows the heat. It takes practice, but you can influence the
way the silver moves just by moving the torch. I first use a long
flame to heat all the metal, when it is nearly hot enough I make a
very small flame (I use a propane and oxygan torch) and move it over
the surface the way I want the reticulation shows, like waves in a
lake.\ I hope this will be clear,
