Sharing a behind the scenes on how I made these Axe Pendants. From carving the wax to casting and clean up.
Hope you enjoy.
I used the stainless steel ring on the left to sandcast a copy in sterling silver. You can see how rouch and textured the band is from the sand.
From there I use files and abrasive wheels on my dremel to smooth the surface.
I love playing with different objects in the sandcasting. Just to see what patterns do well or don't do well. I've cast acorns, rings, twigs, and ingots using this process.
