well since getting back my fist ever cast piece, I have been busy carving....there have been ups and downs with that process. I have been commissioned to make two bespoke heart charms these have taken me a fair amount of time but have provided me with fantastic learning opportunities. I carved these ready to be cast I also decided to make two additional pieces to have cast. A little puffed heart AND on a lunch date out with a good friend a mirror caught my eye that made me think that would make a good pendant or brooch! so I cracked on with that too. I also made a crucifix in metal as a master and had this cast and a mould made. All in all it was all very exciting. I sent them to the casting company.
Then....a call sorry Mrs Hobson by some of the pieces you sent we had an issue where the metal did not flow properly and the waxes you made are ruined. Can we have more waxes. The down side of wax casting is something goes wrong....its back to the beginning! This tested my commitment - BUT back I went to the wax and started again!
