(Hi, this is my second try at posting this one…)
I’m teaching myself how to solder silver… so far, it’s been an
adventure :-). I seem to have been getting a bit of success so far,
but one problem I’ve encountered is that my pieces are coming out of
the pickle solution and are a bit whitish.
It doesn’t seem to be firescale, so I’m wondering if this is glaze
from the flux? If so, would this indicate that I’m using too much
flux? I’m a bit paranoid of fire scale so I coat it on pretty thick.
Any tips on how I should remove this stuff? The pickle doesn’t seem
to get it off, but then again, maybe I’m not pickling for long enough.
Any recommendations on how long to pickle? I didn’t see a length of
time mentioned in any of the books I read.
Thanks in advance for your help!
