I am planning on plunging head first into making pieces in Silver.

I am thinking that it will be worth the extra money to order the GLOSSY version.

If I order a model that won't handle the glossy procedure well (such as the model would get bent, or break), but will work as normal silver (non-glossy), would the model then be sent to me in non-glossy form, and I get a refund for the extra price?

If not, what would happen?

Is there any chance that the glossy procedure would not be consistent across the whole model?

I just really don't want to spend the money getting silver pieces made if they are possibly going to be sent back to me messed up. I have had mixed luck with the S.Steel, and can't afford to have a lot of failures in silver.

Thanks for any info,

Lincoln

So, after a week, no one has anything to say about working in silver?

Should I be worried? Should I contact customer support directly before I order my silver to get these questions answered?

Hi Lincoln,

Apologies, I did not see your previous post.

If you order polished they will do their best to polish the model I do not think there is a procedure in place if a model is deemed un-polishable after purchase.

My advice would be to go for it, if you are not happy with the results then contact customer service to see what they can do about it,

Cheers

OK. Thanks Duann.

I was going to order a few designs, but think I will just order 1 and see how that goes first.

Lincoln? Is that you? This is the Ninja Demon from Cal Arts.
I'm looking at doing some of my dinosaurs in silver as well, but I'm scared to pay the $ for what will probably be an R&D project.

I'd agree there. Haven't had anything printed in silver. The price is rather daunting and especially for resale on places like Etsy where there are a LOT of people making jewellery in silver for often good prices.
