More casting of waste metal aluminum cans into skulls at home using the diy gas bottle foundry .
Now using a mixture of sieved ash with the sand, still waiting on some bentonite and then ill get some play sand and sieve that as well, still also need to sort out a degasser tool and flux to help with a better pour.
I didnt film the bit where i cut a tealight shaped indentation at the top of the head, really simple used a pen to mark it out and then a stanley knife blade to cut and hack it out.
I left the spur on the back of the skull, drilled a hole and its now a rather fetching sconse.
