Viva le lost foam technique

After almost three months of playing with the silly stuff at work it finally dawned to test the lost foam technique - massive success. To the left are homey's initials carved in blue foam. To the right are those initials in aluminum. Absolutely wicked.
Lessons learned: Don't pack the sand too hard or air bubbles get in there. Too loose and the metal may pour out the side of the foam (especially when you pack it up around the edges of the design... This piece came out great and the little dude tore outta there 30 seconds after completion to show his bros. Most excellent.
