Richard was right about the marvels of Argentium if you work in
I just cast my first pieces out of Argentium and the brightness/lack
of fire scale on the very first flask was just shockingly better than
any sterling I’ve cast. I have no affiliation with the makers of
Argentium, I’m more of a hobbyist if you can’t already tell from my
questions I post.
Just shockingly better and I have not even begun the
handwork/soldering, etc. yet which I hear is just as great. Stirring
the melt just before casting with a graphite rod is all you need to
do and expect insanely clean castings with this stuff. Bravo to the
people who developed the use of Germanium in silver. Please tell me
they won technical awards for their innovation. This is truly
remarkable. To make a superior alloy by adding inexpensive elements
is not something seen very often.
