Re: Test casting

I agree with Rika that the surface coloration directly after you nock the mold off is fantastic. I understand that this creates problems cause you can't blend your gates/vents back into the sculpture. Even if you could place your gates differently when you weld the piece together the weld and surrounding area would be discoloured. I do believe that there is a way to recreate this patina using just heat.
