10:06 pm - Russian filigree solder
It seems that there is an outfit that makes the solder formulation recommended in Lansford's video for Russian filigree. I don't know that this is a Deep Dark Secret- but I don't know that it's not, either. So if you have the video and are intrigued, you can find the info on the Forum on her site- or email me, and I'll send it to you.

This is in ingot, not powder, form, sadly, but that's still a great improvement over the formula itself. I was not planning on doing anything that involved melting zinc until it was comfy to do it outside. Zinc fumes are NOT something one should breathe! It'll be a nuisance to file the ingot into powder, but not toxic like melting zinc.
