    Silver - low pressure neutral flame
    Gold - low pressure oxy flame

    Rock on. Thanks from the noobs. Now, to brun off excess silver & gold, what flames would you suggest (as an example, say I fume an entire piece, and then cover parts it with clear to preserve the fuming, and then want to burn off the rest).
