Thanks for the info, I'll try and explain what I am trying to do as you can see what I'm going after. The reason for the zinc is that it can be copper plated then it could be patiniaed at

least I think this would work .

I would like to see what I can come up with casting sculpted panels for doors.

I am a jewelery artist by trade and looking into the larger pieces. I have also started looking into resin casting and mold making with various rubber types. I have tried forever to find a source for the "Green Sand" you refered to but can't find anything less than a 55 gal drum of the stuff. Do you have a source for it.

I do all phases of small works and do induction casting with hydrogen and nitrogen for a cover gas to eliminate all oxygen to

the metal and totally eliminate fire scale.

Merry Christmas and thank you again,

Dee Morris
