Indian/wolf aluminum masks

Good day,
Here is another mask, this is one of my favs. Indian with a wolf.
Start to finish about 2 hours, came out of sand clean, no flashing, a couple minutes filing and a quick buff. Cut a few holes stuck in some marbles and done.

Good day all,
Here is a mask I cast out of aluminum. From start to finish took me about 2 hours. After the casting cooled, we cut the runner bar off, gave it a quick buff then and drilled holes for the eyes and added colored marbles. Set up with some sort of light(natural or other) and the eyes really come to life.

Hello,
Here is a close up pic of the plane(Connie).
You can see the fine detail that was captured with sand.
If you use fine sand, you can get fine detail. Sand is graded like sand paper, 50 grit very course and gives a grainy texture. 150 grit gives you a very fine detail, you can even capture your fingerprint!

This knife was cast in one piece out of aluminum. The pattern was carved from wood. The mold was made with greensand. We have made swords up to 4ft long.

Painting Aluminum/galvanizing

| | |

Hi All, I have two projects, one in aluminum and one that is galvanized, finishing up that require painting. Rich gave me excellent advice as to prepping and painting steel and I had really good results following that advice. Is there anything different I need to do, or worry about, when painting aluminum or galvanized steel? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
