Great -ible! I live in a 200 year old house, so our insulation is pretty terrible and all our windows are single pane glass. My bedroom is on the north side of the house, so it gets the least sun and is always the coldest room in the house. I was curious about a simple way to beef up the windows and this looks perfect.
Laser Cutting Class
You may not want the metals to cool down gradually, I don't know how aluminum or brass would react, but it could be a factor.
It should, if you cure it properly. You may still crack the mold, but if it has supports (such as the container you made the mold in) you should still get a good cast.
Woah. I know what I'm spending my next paycheck on.

It's holding up so far. There doesn't appear to be any residue from stuff burning. I just crumble up the mold, mix it back into my supply, and add a bit more water if it's too dry.
I'm with you, it's nearly impossible to find cat litter without added scents or "odor absorbing" crystals, unless you purchase online. In which case you might as well order powdered bentonite clay. However, I ended up grinding some that had the odor absorbing crystals and just filtering out the crystals through a screen. I used maybe 8-12 cups of cat litter and had more than enough clay for about 2-3 gallons of greensand that works perfectly.
