Another metal casting tutorial
Best wishes to everyone for the Holidays. I am back to my core mission - primarily - creating chaos in the kitchen with my white metal casting experiments. This is the 28 mm knight I sculpted a while back. Unlike my first 28mm figure, I decided to go for it and make his sword and scabbard integral to the main cast and not separate pieces. I gave myself a very slim chance of success with this in a drop cast figure, but it worked! This is revolutionary for Knight Craft. I can see myself moving forward with all sorts of figures now - I still need to add the shield as a separately cast object.
You are all familiar with these steps.
This is a 28mm doll that I will use to make multiple figures. I decided to do this doll without a head. The stance is intended for an archer, but I think it can be made into a few interesting figures.
Thanks for dropping by.
