Yesterday I sand cast my third kitchen cupboard handle. The strange part about sand casting is the pour. I find that quite often when I think pouring the metal has worked, it hasn’t and vice-versa. This time I thought it hadn’t worked, but when I took the mold apart I found that a small bit of sand had fallen from the sides into the bottom of the mold. This resulted in the handle having a large dint of missing metal in the back. Although this wouldn’t be seen I have decided to recast this to make one more perfect. I will be melting the metal to reuse for the next one.
