Questions on making Copper-Silver-Zinc alloy

Casting | | |

Hi Everybody,

My first post here, a question:

I'd like to make an alloy of 80% Copper, 10% Silver and 10% Zinc, to be poured into lost-wax molds (plaster/sand) on a small scale (eg. 10oz total). Copper and silver have reasonably close melting points (Cu 1981F and Ag 1762F), but Zn has a boiling point of 1664F, meaning it could boil off before the other two melted.

Hello fellow metal artists.

This is my first post on ArtMetal so I've sent an image along to establish some legitimacy as a silversmith. (Though not, admittedly, as a photographer, heh.)

I'm a student in Fredericton, New Brunswick who's been away from the bench for a few years and is just returning with the intent of making metalworking my career. I'd like to hear from people who make a living with their craft so we can start a dialog.
