“Scraps” is making some serious progress this week!

Here is some sneak peeks on the process of prepping for casting.

First you have to sprue up the waxes to cast and make a wax cup

Then you have to dip them in a ceramic coating and sands.  You do this till you build up a really thick coating.  In this photo you can see mine in the early stages and in the background you can see some that are much further along.

Time to bust it out! the only way to do it is with a hammer and chisels!
