Learning this exciting process will allow you to reproduce amazing details that are difficult to achieve oth- erwise. Success is dependent on the knowledge of which materials are best suited for casting and how to properly prepare them. In this class, learn about properties of metals best suited for organic castings, gating techniques, the pros and cons of mold making, plus how to approach casting calcium-based organics such as shells and bones.
