Casting in Portugal

aquavpizzai

I can’t believe that I’ve been back from running the casting workshop in Portugal for over a week. This was where we did our casting (except on the evening when we had pizza). The pizza wood ash came in handy as parting powder for our sand moulds; the location was splendid and we had a great time (though I say it myself)aquaworkshop

We used natural finds including these bits of pine cone, cast in both cuttlefish and oilsand.

and these lobster claws worked well in oilsand casting.

I hope to run this workshop again next year, so do let me know if you are interested.
