Hi ArmeriaThanks for the replyHere's some more info:I'm casting mostly in .925 silver. Sometimes brassI've been using MAPP gas canister by itself. It seems to take a long time to melt the silver. Maybe not getting hot enough? I know I don't have much time to pour as some of the silver cools in the crucible during the pour (and I always heat the pour channel of the crucible and keep the heat on during the pour) I also use borax a couple of time during each melt. I tried Acetylene/oxy but it leaves a thick black layer on top. I'm thinking of trying propane/oxy. I always make silicone mold of my model, but if I need a new model I use the sculpey clay. Can I melt the same kind of wax you used to make the anvil? would I melt it into the silicone Mold?
