Brass Mushroom Casting (Cast #095)

  • Published: 28 October 2017
  • This is the first time I've made a cast with brass. The result is not bad but melting brass is a pain so I probably won't use it too often. I definitely don't see being able to use it for ant colonies since it takes so long to melt even a small amount. Also, the higher temperature causes it to react far more violently when it hits water than aluminum.

    Anyway, I believe this is a bolete mushroom. A cluster of these popped up in the yard and this was the best one. I don't know the exact type of mushroom this is. I don't see these very often and haven't since. If you know, tell me in the comments section.

    See the cast page for more info and pictures:

    If you haven't seen my other mushroom cast videos that are annotated, here's a few answers to frequently asked questions:

    -The white stuff is plaster
    -The mushroom inside the plaster is removed before the brass is poured in

    That's all that I can think of right now. I'll add more if I think of anything else.

                        Nevermind who is still watching in 2019,i think the more important question is does he plan on making any more of these videos in 2019?
