After you hammer your metal a bit you heat to soften and then hammer then maybe heat again to shape some more...look up "annealing". There is probably a YouTube video that will show how. With bronze and copper you heat until it glows and then quench after letting it cool for a few seconds. Have fun! I am retired so this blog will drop off when the year I paid for expires so snag what you need and have fun!! Sent from my iPhone

I am not an expert but as far as I know it is not harmful unless you are allergic to it. It is banned in Europe in jewelry so perhaps you might find an article from there expounding on the reasons why. Sent from my iPhone

I am using jeweler's bronze or sometimes called Red brass. You can get it from or When you anneal it it looks like copper but if you clean it up and then lightly heat again it will bring the zinc to the surface and make it a warm brown color. If you seal it then it stays that color but if not it gets brassy looking over time. I am playing with some chemicals right now that make a beautiful brown and some other great colors. Check out as they have some really good demos on their website.

Mica is just cut with scissors unless you have a super thick piece then use a jeweler's saw. It is a stone so it can be used to deflect hear too. If you are trying to find it look for "mica splittings"..Linda Sent from my iPhone
