Hi, I've been sand casting and lost wax casting off and on for a number of years -- mostly off. Most of the items that I've cast have been fairly clunky because, well, finely detailed models were very hard for me to do by hand. I've just started using 3D design and a 3D printer to produce my models and now I can create models that are much more delicate. I'll start casting them this week! If you're in the area and want a casting buddy, I'm looking for some folks to cast with once the plague has passed us all by.
