...and this is why the "mic drop" emoticon was developed.
Yep, that the one!!
I havent touched the green sand in years. When I first wanted to try sand casting I made up some green sand from just regular play sand and some ground up kitty litter. Moisture content was wetter than Niagara falls.
I made a "part" but it was not the greatest when it came to the cosmetics. Sand was just too coarse and too wet. I quickly switched to petrobond.
After seeing oldfoundrymans videos of his green sand castings It opened my eyes to how a good greensand should act and the finish it is capable of. Maybe one day I will try it again.... I would like to anyways....
Ill get a picture of the casting up in a minute, I saved it for show and tell.
Keep in mind , this was 15 years or so ago and just an experiment. But I was hooked ever since.
Awww... I took a picture of my first too. Lost foam. Stunk like hell. 1st and last time for me.
