Re: Test casting

I did that patina with the simplest of methods as a test. I used vinegar and ammonia. I think I buried it in sawdust and poured the liquids on the sawdust, but I am not positive. But first I darkened it a little with Birchwood-Casey M-24.

This time I cast her in two pieces. I poured her head first.



Then her torso.



Not so perfect a casting as her head, but useable.

Welded up.



And she is coming along.



More to come.
