sorry to keep asking stuff!
I have been reading up on working with copper, and I have a couple more questions.
1. I would like to colour copper using heat. I don't have a gas cooker, so what can I use? I have my Hot Head with map, or a butane cooks torch. Will these be too hot & melt the metal?
2. I have read that you can seal copper to preserve it, either with a sealant or a wax. Does anyone here do this? Can you even do this with copper jewellery? If I trhen sold it, I'm guessing that I would have to warn people that it has been sealed and what it has been sealed with....
3. Can I paint silver slip onto the dried copper clay before firing?
Thanks for all your help so far, I think I'm almost ready to take tha plunge
