    First casting completed!!!

    Well despite a hectic weekend I did manage to cast my first blanks.
    I used translucent tinting pigment from easy composites, will try the powder colouring next attempt.

    Quite happy but will have to see how it turns later in the week.

    Well done Graham. Glad you got there. Look forward to seeing a turned item and future experiments.
