Arthur and Billy get cast

Today was the turn of Arthur and Billy the clay puffin sculptures to be turned into bronze.

Their moulds and wax copies had been made, ceramic shells created and now it was time to melt the bronze and do the pour, so I’d headed over to Ormskirk to watch the process.

They both behaved as they should have and two nice casts were made, ready for assembling and fettling. But that will have to wait for the next time.
