While silver wires work for fuming, some artists complain about the quality of the finished look. If you have trouble getting what you need from this try using silver coin. And for a great fuming experience use quartz rod to hold your metals.

Wire has worked just fine for me personally so its still getting the 5 stars. But I have heard coin can be better for some. Get a bigger MM quarts rod for sure!
