For a long time I wanted to try to make national symbols of different countries using various metals. This time it'll be a copper Maple Leaf.

Step 1: First Casting Attempt
First time I tried to make a plaque as usual using a drag and a cope. Before this time I didn't cast anything big using copper. I found out that it wasn't as liquid as other metals. Therefore, the first attempt was failed.
Step 2: Pouring Right on a Foam Pattern
This time I've decided to pour copper right on a foam pattern and it worked well.
Step 3: Finishing
After brushing a Maple Leaf is shining and looks really nice.
