with Noël Yovovich

DVD

Discover 5 fast and fun ways to cast with accomplished jewelry artist Noël Yovovich in this fascinating workshop! Any time you melt and pour metal, that's casting--it can be into a mold, but there are other ways to utilize casting too. In this video, you will learn 2 mold methods, sand casting and cuttlebone casting, as well as three additional methods that produce more sporadic and organic results. Sometimes, the best part is not being sure exactly what you're going to get. All of these casting methods can be done in just a few minutes with a minimum of equipment, and redone just as quickly if you don't like the results. A great way to put scrap metal to good use, too, including metal clay scrap!
