I broke out the piece we poured to day. I think the shell cooled to quickly and the entire piece did not fill with bronze. I broke enough of the shell off to know how it poured (most of the shell off ) and will save my shoulder and have legacy fine art foundry finish breaking big off the rest. Next week I will do the chasing and see if I can save the piece. I am hopeful for lemonade. I do love taking something that others would throw away and turning it into art.
