Jason Brown Posted November 16, 2015 Share Posted November 16, 2015 Hey Yall. I tried making Mokume Gane for the first time today and failed. I was using stacked quarters tied with copper wire. I had them on a piece of flat steel in the forge (charcoal) and heated until I thought I saw the copper sweat (orange heat.) Then I smacked them lightly at first then I whacked them pretty good 6 or 7 times. While they were hot they seemed to be well stuck together. When they cooled they are no longer stuck together. Did I just not get it hot enough? Did I smack it too much or not enough? I tried this with a stack of 10, 6 and 4. Same results all: burnt looking flat quarters.
