Abby what investment and wax would you recommend for a beginner who wants to do bronze? I want to try aluminium bronze. I have some copper water pipe and some aluminium wire, going to try for 90/10 if I can get it to melt together.
For a first attempt I am going to try for about an 1 oz. using a torch and a hole in some silica sand. I dont think my pile of bricks will get that hot, plus i have no crucible for that heat.
which would be easier melting the copper and adding the aluminium or the other way around?
