Test casting

I am doing an ancient Egyptian queen, about 2/3 life size. This is a failed casting. There was still moisture in the investment.



A few weeks ago I cast the front part of her crown.



The vulture head is solid, not hollow. I wanted to test to see how it filled before pouring the entire crown. I have too much work invested in the wax to take chances with it. All of the shrinkage was in the gate, exactly where it should have been.

I put a patina on it.



Now I am preparing to pour the queen again. This time no moisture.
