    I wish it was as simple as that! Although tbh this isn’t always the easiest forum to find things in and it needs a lot of patience. There are only a few of us still actively trying to share our knowledge so doing searches on topics can throw up a lot of info from a wider knowledge base

    Sorry to be boring ..... but if I paste a YouTube link does it normally show in red if it’s live and active.

    Still you're not talking to yourself. There are hundreds of lurkers out there who will take in your recommendations, but are too shy to say so. Dennis.
    Well it was definitely appreciated by me. I have opened my Delft Clay box, taken a look and put it away again! I need to take the plunge sooner or later!

    hi Caro, yes take the plunge , .... I love the results you can get with delft clay... you donít need to commit yourself after making a mould if it doesnít look right... itís always worth practising mouldmaking techniques first then smash it up like a sandcastle and start again you wonít waste anything. have fun and play with it first before getting serious and melting silver or bronze.

    I really must - I have a lovely vintage terrier button that I want to cast and set which is why I bought it. Thank you for the encouragement.

    yes do it ... If it looks like it originally came out of a mould it would be perfect for copying and casting... if it has any awkward undercut that would prevent it coming out of the sand neatly this can be temporarily filled with something like wax or even Blu-Tack can work... would be nice to see it if you can you post a pic.
