I like Jimmy DiResta’s wordless how-to videos. In this one, he casts a skull ring with a silicone mold. I’m not sure what kind of metal he’s using, but it looks like it melts at a low temperature.

    Love it, I do metal casting as a hobby myself!

    where can i get that little crucible you were using?

  3. Anders Haglund says:

    Since it’s jewelry the metal is most likely Field’s alloy. It’s the most common low melting point, non toxic metal alloy.
