          Gold smithing was once a dark art wrapped in secrecy. YouTube has shown us that any dude willing to file etc can make a living even while suffering from a seriously low attention span.

                                      Something you forgot to mention about the kiln burnout is the third and most important purpose for it. That is that it bakes the investment to force out any moisture still inside. Otherwise the water, even at a tiny scale, will turn to steam when you pour and will fire molten metal back at you or even explode.

                                        I met those laughing, fierce hazel eyes. Cassian’s smile softened. “Hello, Feyre.” My throat tightened to the point of pain, and I threw my arms around his neck, embracing him tightly. “I missed you, too,” Cassian murmured, squeezing me.
                                        When, in the street, I see a mother walking with her grown-up daughter, I can hardly bear to witness the mother’s pride, the softening of her face, her incredulous joy at being granted her daughter’s company; and the iron discipline she imposes on herself, to muffle and conceal this joy.

                                                If you use a rawhide hammer then you wont leave any hammer dents in the ring of course i dont know how it would work with gold and it is a slower process however thats something i do
