I’ve wandered this FWW site and cruised the internet and found a few bits on how to make casting molds and do a bit of turning, but I really haven’t landed on a spot that gives great instruction for someone who’s never done it.
I am pondering Alumilite for the resin, and can make molds out of almost anything, I’ve decided. I know I’ll need a pressure pot and sourced one at HF for $100. I have a nice little lathe and some turning tools. I’m curious about dyes and powders, different kinds of projects for a beginner in this vein of woodworking, and, well, anything at all, really.
Has anyone here done a bit of this work, and can you describe how you started, what you’ve done and where to get ideas for projects? I have ideas, but I’m not the artistic type. I know when I see something I like, but I have a hard time envisioning it and making it into a solid object.
