Cast #089 - Aluminum Funnel Mushroom Casting
15 ozCast Material:
Reuleaux Triangle, 3.75" diameter, 0.5" thickBase Wood: PurpleheartMount:
Bolt through base and cast
This is one of the early attempts at mushroom casting. I didn't dry the plaster enough before pouring the aluminum, causing the aluminum to bubble when casting. As a result there are rough parts to the cast and the stem is hollow, with parts where you can see through it. I filled the bottom of the hollow stem with casting resin to give a solid surface to mount the mushroom to the base.
The base is made from purpleheart
cut in the shape of a reuleaux triangle
. The finish is Gloss Polyurethane
