What I do all day

A furnace I helped to build using an old air conditioning filter tank, going to be used for lots of casting.

Heating up the crucible inside

Pouring molten brass into the students casts

This is what we cast, a manila and some little animal heads in the background. Brass, yet to be cleaned up, but I think it looks quite good straight out the mould. Lost wax process.

Wax ‘Cassie’ action figure hand sculpted to be electroplating, eventually electroformed.

After approx 8 hrs in the electroplating bath, lots of connector wires to hold on all the little parts! She’s very shiny

image

Added enamel to the tin soldier ‘Cassie’ action figure..still have to perfect her a bit

Here she is amongst my plasma cut and MIG weld buildings, getting everything together for my exhibition in January.
