Question:

I do a lot of chain maille projects. I make my own rings with a pro ring maker out of gold filled and sterling with a copper core. What medium works best in a tumbler to remove the burrs on the cuts? Should I use rouge in the tumbler?

Answer:

Under ‘Caring for Your Wire’, we have a newly updated article all about tumbling that includes advice from our chain maille friends: https://wire-sculpture.com/jewelry-making-blog/1384/tumbling-your-jewelry/
