Aluminium Casting

So, I've mentioned that I've been aluminium casting. Right now I'm working on some belt buckles with my BM camp's log on them, a skull and crossed wrenches. Here, I have photos. You can see the master followed by us packing said masters into sand. Then we pull them out and make all the proper channels and gates. We melt the aluminium and pour it in. I tried to get some good shots of silver and glowing red hot so you can get a glimpse of the beauty of what liquid aluminium looks like. It has that electric orange color you never quite see in nature but is also silver and reflective at the same time. Anyway, we pour it in and later break it out. At the end is close to what the products are going to look like.
