This should be an interesting and fun change of pace for our group as Mark will the first member to demonstrate how to cast metal. For this demo, Mark will use lead free pewter and the participles here would be the same whether casting brass, silver or iron, etc. The use of lead free pewter will be a plus as we won't involuntarily breath in any toxins, other than someone's cologne, etc.! Mark plans on using a soapstone hand-carved mold for one demo and a sand mold for another. He has used wood as well as other creative material for some of his previous mold work. You might have noticed that he usually has a couple of small objects around his neck -he cast those as well. So, be prepared to learn something and to hear, no doubt, some interesting stories.
