Mary Stuart from our Brisbane studio demonstrates the process of casting small bespoke objects using tin. Starting with the metal in solid form, the tin is heated to 231.9 °C to allow it to be poured into a pre-made mould. Once poured into the pre-cast mould, the metal cools into a solid state, taking the form of the negative shape within.
The final step in casting small bespoke objects from tin is to extract the solid form from the pre-cast mould. Having such a small surface area means the cooling process takes a mere 4 minutes.
