Variable Width Casting Vessel




Introduction: Variable Width Casting Vessel

I needed to make copies of a small item I had printed out, so I had to have a casting vessel = something to place the item in and to pour silicone over it to make a cast. I used cassete tape cases - they are straight and smooth and will leave no gaps - or so I thought. I stuck them together with sticky tape. The bonus is that you can fit more cassete tape cases into the vessel if you need to adjust the width or breadth for economy.

Materials / tools used:

6 cassete tape cases

Sticky tape

    This looks like a great idea. Have you successfully used this to cast anything yet?

    If so, you should show off the thing you cast! :)
