I Screwed Up....

    I've had the Spurs from my first long beard I ever killed put up in a box forever. I decided to make a necklace with them. I put them in a pot of simmering water on the stove to get them cleaned. I got distracted by my 2 year old for too long and the water evaporated leaving my Spurs to burn in the bottom of the pot..... I know, I know....I'm an idiot. I was wondering if anyone has made a mold of Spurs for casting and some instruction on it.

    Small molds are easy to make for things like this.
    Clear RTV silicone from your local store and put it into a cup, a few drops of waterbase paint , mix, apply and in a few minutes your mold is make.
    Now to much paint it the cup and your silicone will seize right up on you.
    casting materials can be bought at any art store, even silicone can be bought there too also if you don’t want to use RTV from the store.
