`Just heat to reticulate!` This clever silver crinkle metal sheet (0.5mm thick) immediately reticulates with lovely crinkled texture as soon as it is brought up to temperature with a gas torch - without the need for any surface preparation. It is fully annealed which makes it soft and easy to form. When reticulating sterling silver you need to prepare the surface and the traditional process takes some time and often governs your design. Solder, as you would for sterling silver metal.
The beauty of this metal is that it can be formed before bringing out the surface texture and it will hold its shape perfectly. This is such a great way to create beautiful texture on your pieces without any compromise on design. If you are unhappy with the reticulated areas you can overheat the metal which will cause the alloy to flow freely on the surface of the fine silver where it may be stirred with a soldering poker or metal brush for unusual effects. Heat resistant chip or granules can be added into the molten surface for even more of a unique design or why not add a patina with liver of sulphur to your end design just as you might with a sterling silver piece.
It consists of 80% silver and 20% copper reticulation alloy on fine silver (99.9% silver) back, giving an overall silver content of 96.6% which can be hallmarked. Please specify your cutting dimensions when ordering and we will cut to size.
