Resin to Sterling Silver (Specific Gravity)


Looking for help on this, I’ve been in the progress of making the switch from hand carved wax to resin printing. my question is what it the required amount of Sterling Silver for every gram of resin? wax is: The wax weight multiplied by the “specific gravity” of he metal you are casting (x10) or multiplied by a factor of 1.1-1.2 to the
sprue. In this case , Sterling silver has a specific gravity of 10, so
wax weight times 10 times 1.2 equals metal needed.

Also is it best to burn out with the spur up or down?
