Step 1: Loading a Crucible
To make this plaque I need approx 2.5 kg (4.4 lbs) of brass.
Step 2: Flask, Pattern, Green Sand
Making a mold using bentonite green sand.
Step 3: An Open Mold
I tried to make a plaque using an "open" casting method but it didn't work well. I decided to remake it.
Step 4: A Close Mold
This time I used "close" mold and got a great result.
Step 5: How It Looks?
The plaque weight is 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs). It looks very good after brushing :)
