    I've also seen, close up, at the International Festival of Glass a life size small lamb in glass, which had silver encased inside. I'm not sure if this is useful or not Chris, but thought I'd mention it.

    Thanks all for the contributions and pointers.

    I am not too concerned about the volume of silver (I have some kilo bars and I can't see his little hand being any more voluminous than one of them) but the shrinkage issue may be a concern. It has taken me two months to get to the point of logging back in, so I had better just crack on with the alginate before he gets any bigger!

    Lovely glass footprint by the way

    Hi Chris, it's not so much about the amount of silver as your ability to melt and pour such a large ingot. Even melting small amounts of silver with jewellers' equipment can be quite tricky.
