I posted this on another forum and the response wasn't too bad. This is one of my goofy ideas I just had to try. I have never done any casting and I am no way set up for it, but I just had to give this a try. I ran to the local hobby store and got some Aluminite. All they had was call Water Clear. I have never heard of it but like I said I have never cast before. I got a pine cone from the yard, put it in an empty pill bottle, mix up the Aluminite and poured it in. I tried to put the bottle on my scroll saw for a while to get some of the bubbles out. It did get some but there were still a lot left. Next day i turned it. It turned the cone a gray color. Not sure why. Well this is how it turned out. I think this is not good, but there are possibilities, i.e., maybe some coloring in the mix or something. It was fun and I love to experiment so all is not lost. Maybe if I pit a little light in it.....
All comments welcome, I have thick skin.
