    Thumbs up Casting Difficulties Resolved

    Initially found that Polyester Resin reacts with the Elmer's Spray Adhesive causing the shredded money to come loose from the brass tube and float to the surface.

    Found that if I saturate the shredded money with Thin CA after it has been glued to the brass tube with Elmer's Spray Adhesive that there was no reaction with the Polyester Resin.

    That is very neat!

    So I guess you are buying the shredded money from somewhere, what does it cost?

    You can get a 20 - 25 lbs. box from the Bank of Canada in Montreal for a total cost of $75 including GST/PST and shipping.
