After a second and third attempt at the little component in the last post, I took the best one (on the right below) to the casting place.
Sadly, the casting man told me that parts of it were too fine (in the way it all connected and the wax/metal would need to be poured etc) to guarantee a good cast. I appreciated the honesty and advice of the casting man, but was miffed it meant I needed to hand-make six more.
As the first three took over two hours to make each, I resigned myself to a full day in the studio to make the full suite. But when you’re making a handful of the same thing, it’s amazing how fast it can all go – the six additional ones only took me about four hours all together. So pleased!
And putting the pieces together, now ready for the tumbler to harden.
Can’t wait for it all to come together.
