Sand Casting with Molten Metal


ACE Kids K-12 / Arts & Crafts -
Winter 2023

If you've ever wondered how some small objects can contain so many fine details, it’s often because they have been cast in a mold. In this class, using Delft clay and kinetic sand as our casting mediums, you will create a series of unique molds, and then fill them with molten bronze or pewter. To make your molds, you will learn how to take impressions of existing objects, and also how to carve into the medium and add details. Some of the things we might cast include detailed pendants, coins, medallions, or anything from your imagination.
