In the past several months that I’ve been working towards getting this metal casting down. I have been trying to think of things to make that people would buy, other than skulls. I was just browsing the net when I stumbled upon 3D soap molds like the one below. Of course, being a soap mold, they won’t withstand the heat of the bronze, so I’ll have to first cast it on wax, then use that to make a plaster mold. Burn out all the wax in the oven. Then, and only then can I pour the bronze. The draw back, and there’s always a draw back, to get the metal out, the plaster has to be broken. Which means every time you what to cast that design you have to repeat the whole process. But it will be well worth it to be able to do them.
