Sand casting is such a brilliant technique to learn…….
Sand casting is such a brilliant technique to learn and bring to your bench for it expands your creativity. Andrew has seen a lot of twig rings on the internet these days. A lot of times, these have been cast using large jewellery casting manufacturers but using the sand casting technique, you should be able to produce these items from your own workshop from start to finish.
Andrew prefers using Delft Clay but the rings contained in the usual kit are not suitable. Andrew sources some new aluminium frames from an ebay seller, (link to the ebay seller, CLICK HERE,) that are the ideal shape for this project. Seeing we have to cast the twig straight, Andrew shows you some rectangular frames he uses.
