I am a glass bead and jewelry maker. I love color and nature.
This is something new for me. Sand Casting. Thanks to Gail Hodder for her kindness in showing me this Art. Sand casting is both interested and mind boggling. But for the most part - Fantastic. The picture of the dolphin tails give you and idea of the process. The 1st part - the blue dolphin tail - this is carved out of jewellers wax - then the 2nd part is the tail on the right - this is the piece that comes out of the sand when the granules are melted and poured into the mold - the 3rd part is the tail on the left - this is sanded and polished.
This ring above shows the wax mold and the finished ring after sanding, filing and polishing.
The cross shows the wax mold and the cross when is comes out of the sand mold.
So much to learn and so much to do - but just having fun doing it all.
