hello

Do you know if it is possible any easy way of repairing a dent/about 1cm diameter) on the surface of a vase?

Thanks

Wow! That's very interesting. You could certainly try that technique since you won't have to worry about any paint damage. The one thing I would caution against is if there is a hairline crack in the dent that may open up. I would suggest first trying this on a piece of silver that may be headed for the refiner.

Good luck!

Wow, You have a great website Jeff. I've just spend quite a time having a good look round and learning even more about silver and how it is made and looked after. Thanks lots! Anita Very Happy
