Step 1: Basics of Sand Casting
Sand casting is a process that uses a mold made from either metal, wood, or wax to create a negative impression in a special sand that will be the mold for the molten metal. This mold is then filled with a molten metal that is left to cool and solidify. Once the metal has solidified the mold can be hit with a hammer, pipe, or any hard object to crack the sand mold and expose the metal object.
