Casting Pewter

This week in class we cast some pewter.
Design came first.

Pieces were made in wax and sprued together.
This was then placed in a tin can and covered in plaster investment.
Heated to removed the wax and kept warm to take the metal
This is what I had after all of that.
Then all those bits were cut free and the filing began.
Followed by carborundum paper.
Wet and Dry
The final polish has not happened yet but I am close.
These will be brooches, just a bit of fun.
The "JB" is going to be the signature on my small Sweat box exhibit.
I am going to share this on
Check out what the other creative folks have been up to this week.
