    Red face Sterling Silver Sheet - Annealed or not annealed? That is my question!

    I was hoping someone here could tell me if the sterling silver sheet (specifically 0.50mm) arrives fully annealed or not? I really need to know before I purchase it. Thanks!

    It's sold as fully annealed. I still end up doing it again most of the time though

    Just remember that if you do anneal it again, then protect the surface from firescale, especially if you are annealing it with a torch.

    Try using Auflux or an equal mixture of borax powder and borasic powder mixed with meths.

    Magic Boric (affectionately known to many of us as Magic Boris) is a brilliant solution for avoiding firescale.

    It says that Magic Boris doesn't evaporate, Di. Do you pour it into a dish and keep it there? Does it eventually get dirty?

    it Cyrstalizes so you add more water Lindy, it does get dirty i just tend to dip my stuff in more often during heating to build up a coating
