Casting Using Cuttle Fish

November 3, 2011

We kick started the half term with a lesson on casting using cuttle fish in the advanced class. This was great fun, though not a 100% successful, it is difficult to maintain the temperature of the silver, or to get it hot enough to pour successfully through the funnel into the mould. We will be having another go next week though!

In our beginners class everyone successfully cut out their first piece in copper and Sarah who joined last term soldered her first piece. Another enjoyable night, I’m looking forward to seeing some new designs this term.

If you’ve worked with cuttle fish please let us know how you got on, we’ll be taking photo’s next Wednesday in the second class so look out for the update.
