Hi everyone, I'm working on a practice piece that I plan on keeping displayed at my home of an Anchor with a piece of rope attached to it and USN across it on the bottom on a 2 inch round disc of mild steel. I'm a Navy Veteran and it's a take off of the Navy Anchor displayed on some of the dress uniform hat. I plan on inlaying Brass, Copper and a bit of silver from a piece of wire I made from melted down silver scraps a while back, my question is, there are places where the metals will be touching each other and I dont want to ruin an inlayed piece while inlaying another type because it was harder than the adjoining piece. So which should ? I'm thinking that the Brass should go 1st, followed by the Copper and finally the Silver. Is my order correct or am I completely wrong ? Does it even make a difference ? I really would appreciate any help I could get on the matter. Thanks everyone " KEEP GROOVING"
