Aluminum casting on the cheap? Answered
For my woodshop class I am making a cane/"pimpstick" and I am making a custom head for it. I want to cast it in aluminum using the lost wax technique. would normal plaster of paris be a good material to use for the mold? the peice is about 3 cubic inches.
I was thinking about having two "fires" one to heat my aluminum and another to heat the mold so it doesnt shatter. Is that workable?
P.S. It would be a one use thing so no need for anything expensive. I have literally 10 dollars to spend on this.
