A question about Pewter casting Answered


Hullo, just had a call from my mate who wants to do abit of pewter casting, now he had a very specific question about molds and the silicone to use, I had a look round but no one mentions a particular sort, I thought all silicone is silicone ... but decided to bring the question to the experts

To make a silicone mold, for pewter casting, what sort of silicone should my friend use? He shall be making a belt buckle from what i gather.

Thanks chaps

Mould making materials (inc. silicone) for making moulds to cast metals in - no good?

Oh sorry, I'd go for any of those (weighing-in prices) as they're sold for this purpose.

But it means shipping from the usa... If it's not just all perpous silicone, it must have a specific name

Try Alex Tiranti - They're in Reading, and sell all kinds of mould making. The link is for a rubber suitable for tin casting.
