This video shows the process I use to sandcast my popular F Bomb key chains. All my casting equipment (sand and frame) I get from https://www.etsy.com/shop/DIYJewelryCasting I also am in his wonderful group that has amazing tutorial videos and wonderful people to help you troubleshoot any issues you have. Find it on FB https://www.facebook.com/groups/262359177616661 I use a MAPP gas torch ( can get them from local hardware stores). I will try and make another video soon and include voice directions for all the steps I go thru, this was just a quick demo and we were chatting about nothing related to casting. These key chains can be purchased from my website www.loraleeartist.net Feel free to ask any questions, I happily share knowledge and if I can't help, I'll direct you to someone that can. Thanks for watching.

An acorn from our Granddaddy Oak tree in our yard here in Louisiana. The ground is always covered with them every year. I used Craig Dabler's sandcasting kit to cast this one in sterling silver. I save all my scraps of silver from different projects and use them to cast things like this. So no metal goes to waste in my shop. Every bit is saved to use in casting new items. Recycling is Beautiful.
