Suggestions for metal finishes for fireplace screen

| |

Hi All,

I'm new to ArtMetal, however I'm very impressed by not only the works being created but the amount of support that members provide to one another.
Currently I am building a fireplace screen. I am wondering what my choices are for metal finishes as I am concerned the heat of the fire will effect finishes.

Designs for a wax burnout kiln

| |

I am wondering if anyone has plans or suggestions for a wax burnout kiln? Currently we are using a kiln which is constructed out of an oil drum, which work well, but it is loaded from the top making it difficult to get the molds in and out of the kiln. Majority or the bronze sculpture object which we are casting are within 6"-2.5' in height, so I was thinking of a front loading design might be a good approach.
