We had a great event May 11th. Twenty molds, 180 pounds of bronze. I'll start posting some photos starting with mold making.

I'm finally putting up some photos of some of the castings from the May Pour. These castings are right out of the molds so some clean-up work and finishing still need to happen. These run the gamut from parts that will be machined into fittings, to bas-relief artwork, to daggers. I'm happy to report we had a high success rate! Every casting was usable.

I'm going to pour bronze again the end of August and will put up an announcement in the next day or so.
