Was the mold preheated?  Maybe that was partially responsible for the bubbles?

I've noticed the bubbles mainly when I keep the torch on the pour too long, when I'm trying to affect the pour lines.

Sorry about the late reply! You've come on leaps and bounds! Fantastic to see! 

No problem, and thank you very much.

I forgot all about this site. been 5 months since my last post...been pouring quite a bit though.

 

Those are great looking bars @Ollie1016

 

Here are a bunch of my most recent pours. I have also started using wood as a medium for mold making.

You don't even need to buy/make a mould. you can cast in an ants nests or even different types of fruit to get amazing shapes that would be very difficult or even impossible with a mould.

Fire ants nest looks amazing.

I've got some spare pieces from Atlantis Mint http://www.atlantismint.com/index.php/ if you're interested.

 

Selling for what they cost me inc 1st class signed-for for £60.  They're the Tiger, Dragon and Eagle Head.

 

I love the poured stuff.  You might want to check out http://www.yeagerspouredsilver.com/index.php He has quite a few nice pieces.  On 16oz (I think that's the weight limit before postage shoots up), you can get them landed for around £21/oz.

Yeah, I have seen some people try and use different things to pour into, one guy used ramen noodles and an icecream sandwich...and I have seen how some of the aluminum ant nest pours come out...may have to experiment some more.

Hi,

today i made four small Viking Bars and played around with a Mold, made from my small and big Ballhammers. It was very cold today, so i have to heat up to 950 Degrees Celsius, to let the Silver stay in heat. The Bubbles , made from the Ballhammermold are very glossy. Was a simple Idea but i like the Product. Hope some of you like it too.

best wishes
