Pewter workshop

Today we learnt how to cast things from pewter and make moulds.

top tips for pewter casting:

  1. air risers
  2. fairly even design to ensure even pour
  3. best casts come from a slightly warm mould
  4. dont over heat pewter or else it comes out cloudy of doesn’t fill mould properly

I love this technique so much i mad badges for my friends with our festivals logo on them. Beardyfest badges:
