    I always use yellow gold solder on rose gold these days as the rose gold solders come up yellow anyway.

    There was another thread, she is Hughs wife apparently but doesn't come online so I guess Hugh is trying to market her jewellery.
    This is not really the place for that, Hugh, it is for sharing...

    You're welcome.
    It is to prolong the life of the crucible, also leave it out to cool in a safe place rather than leaving it to cool in the kiln for the same reason.
    Be sure to check it regularly...

    No but you know you need to heat the crucible before adding the metal?
    Also heat the kiln before adding the crucible.
    Make sure you pour in a fire safe area as the metal can bounce out...

    I always solder, lobster clasps are fine if you stick a bit of techno-flux on them and use easy solder.
    I haven't had any problem with them in the pickle either?

    Just depends on the shade of blue I think, and also, of course, personal choice.
