Q&A with Mark Nelson

Maria St. James asked:
Nice! Didn't realize about the flattening part. I'm guessing not good for Argentium, since that tends to slump - need to stick with charcoal block for that Make that a nice, flat, even charcoal block (ask me how I know that, lol.)
Mark Nelson answered:
Thanks for sharing that Maria, you're spot on with it. Argentium will be tricky on a wire nest, especially when using thinner gauges. That stuff will sag for sure.
