“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.
Then the pieces go into a furnace to melt out all of the remainder of the wax and solidifies the ceramic shell mold.
After you have your molds all prepped its time to melt some metal!!
After the pour
Time to bust it out! the only way to do it is with a hammer and chisels!
