Re: Casting Flours

Hamish,

The casting of organic material is possible and requires the same caution and considerations used in casting wax models. The material needs to be thick enough to allow the metal to enter the cavity. The flask needs to be hot enough to burn-out the organic material and volitize the ash. Some casters coat the flowers and leaves with a thin layer to thicken it before investing it in the flask.

Hope this helps,
Fred
