Temperatures for annealing and color


#1

Hello!:

I’ve been experimenting with different alloys but I haven’t been
able to find on these. So my question is, what are the
annealing temperatures for shakudo, shibuichi, shiro-shibuichi and
kuro-shibuichi and what are their colors like in dim light?? Note
that I am using a propane-air torch over pumice…

thank you!!! JK

They all will anneal nicely at 1100 - 1200 F this is about the same
temperature that Prips flux clears at so that is a good indicator.
