Almost and almost again.....

Almost done with the slurry process on the way to the bronze pour. I'm still very unsure of this new material but Ward swears by it and he's been using it since the seventies.

I've went ahead and begun to overcoat the last tree from the disastrous last pour in an attempt to reclaim something of the work put into it. I am coating the old shell with the new shell mix so I can attempt a normal burnout. It might work-it might not. It might completely crack to uselessness and it might hold together perfectly. It might also act as a sealant over the burning wax trapped in the inner shell and then explode much like a sealed pot pushed past boiling. I think I only have people willing to help me with this operation so that they can see the show and what will happen next.
