The plastic door number on my flat door was damaged, so I decided to make a new one. I will make it of brass using lost foam casting technology.

Step 1: Making a Mold

Cutting a polystyrene foam pattern and making a mold

Step 2: Melting and Pouring

Melting and pouring brass. After this step it's time to open a flask.

Step 3: Cutting and Sanding

After I cut several pieces and sand the number, it is ready to be put on the flat door.
