So this is my first crack at pewter casting and i decided to try something really really hard.. a bell. yes bells are harder to make than they seem like they should be. I made a bell in cad and 3d printed it. i made a false bell out of plaster and put it all in sand. I cut up a old pewter mug and tossed it in the forge.

This is my 3D print

I cut some chunks off of this old pewter mug

I fired the forge and melted the pewter down.

I dumped the molten pewter in the sand. I busted open the form and... darn it didn't flow throughout.

I clean it up anyway. it is kinda sad but it still rings
