Step 5: prepare metal and crucible
I used a stainless steel measuring cup for my crucible, which has a meting point of 1510°C (2750°F)
I knew that I was only going to reach about 400/900, so using this as my crucible was a fine choice. Glass would have also worked, as it melts at around the same point as stainless steel (and higher, depending on the type of glass).
Find your metals and coil or snip into your crucible.
