Another great  thing that many of you can identify with is that I took 30 credits worth of jewelry and metalworking classes so now I feel like I am using something for which I paid way to much money.

Whahoo! I am finally using that giant money sink known as higher education for something.

Cost cast aside I had a great time and learned many cool techniques which I hope you will enjoy learning about as well.

We will go through the steps in several pewter casting techniques.

These metalworking skills will be usable with other metals while being the easiest and safest to accomplish when using pewter as our medium.

Pewter is one of the most malleable metals when it is in sheet form but it is also the least forgiving of abuse. Hit it too hard with a hammer and it might as well be sent back to the melting pot.

But with a such a low melting point, pewter is idea for beginners since it can be melted at temperatures found on a stove top or barbeque grill.

We will be using several casting and shaping techniques; silicon, plaster, and soapstone molds. As well as showing how to coat a mold for a thin sheet of pewter in the shape of the object.

Follow Nate the Nerdarch:
I would say my manner, skill sets, and subject knowledge are incongruous but they all seem to find a home under the umbrella term of nerd. I have a passion for studying science, religion, art, games, crafting, wine/beer-crafting, sustainable living, and green chemistry. I really enjoy gaming with friends and writing about my experiences as a nerd.
