Casting in the form of sand

It looks like Petrobond, which is a commercial oil sand. Please be very careful with water around casting work - any moisture in the pot can blow molten metal all over the place. I always preheat metal to be added to the crucible on the forge to make sure it is dry. Wet tongs could also be a problem if any water finds its way into the melt.

Just out of curiosity, what is your native language spoken on the video?

HWooldridge, I am careful, molten metal play with me does not since yesterday. I had earlier make casting silver and brass, aluminum is a easiness of. I added water because I thought it was the best choice, it looks like the bentonite, that sells so declared , and I had nothing else available :)

I'm originally from Europe, from Poland. I do not know what you heard, at work we talking in several languages.
