Default Casting a Bronze Age Wolf's Head

Hey Guys

So we recently made a video on our latest metal casting: a bronze age inspired wolf's head amulet!
The bronze was heated via blowtorch to over 950°C and cast into a Delft Clay aluminum ring mold!
The finished product can be worn round the neck as pendant when coupled with a leather cord.
The same process can of course be used to cast any small high detail objects - Why not try making a slingshot amulet to wear with pride!
