Title: Are there any antler casters among ya?
Post by: Antlertine on October 30, 2003, 10:24:45 AM
Howdy All.  I was just wondering if any of you cast antlers?  I have been toying around with it as a hobby and have some kinks I need to work out.  Like air bubbles and such.  Would love to share ideas.  Let me know if there are any fellow casters.  I hope the Fall is treating you all well.  I live in Arizona where we dont have much of a Fall, it just suddenly gets cold!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!

What are you talking about, making sets of antlers?  If so, how do you start to do that?  Or should I ask Mitch Rompola??   :o  :shock:  :twisted:  :D

Hi Big58cal. By making sets of antlers, I make a silicone / fiberglass mold of a huge rack and pour copies out of resin.  It is quite a process but is really neat.  I first make a fiberglass jacket around a set of antlers that have been coated in silicone.  after the silicone is removed from the antlers, I pour resin into the silicone to make a copy of the original.  I have tons of photos if you are interested.  Send me your email address and I will send you a few photos of some bucks I have casted.  My email address is: wildernesstrails@citlink.net

Hey Antlertine, you've got mail.  Sounds like a lot of fun, but a lot of work also.
