Our first foray into casting lead crystal! Left is a lavender/purple cast crystal skull. Lead crystal is about 30% heavier than unleaded glass, so this baby (at about 3 by 2.5 inches) weighs nearly a kilogram, and sparkles like crazy in the light. I think it turned out lovely. Below is a cast crystal torso in green- and the clarity and sparkle of this green is to die for. I can't wait to make boxes for these pretties to sit on.
But, alas, I cut my hand pretty badly while de-molding the crystal, and ended up getting 3 stitches at the ER. But came back right afterwards and finished de-molding. And wouldn't you know it- it's my good hand that got fucked up.
