More Casting

Original, mold, cast piece

I had always looked at casting as a way to make replicas of pieces that I needed lots of but with the ease molds can be made and cast I can knock out copies of pieces that I only need 1 or 2 of - it still saves time and, more importantly, the 2 pieces are identical. The end of the barrel is a cut down piece from the inside of a make-up dispenser but it still needed 2 half barrel shapes to finish it off. I scratched one, cast it and made 4 copies. The piece itself was also cast and hollowed out, which worked out much more successfully than I had thought it would.
