If you want a top of the line casting process, the Delft Clay Method is a highly refined form of sand casting that substitutes genuine Delft clay from Holland for ordinary casting sand. Invented by Hans Karreman, a Dutch goldsmith, the use of Delft Clay is much finer than casting sand. This provides remarkably sharp and highly detailed castings in gold, silver, copper-based alloys, pewter etc. Castings require very little finishing work. Once the piece has been casted, the clay can be reused.
This is a cold-molding process, molds can be made from patterns composed of wood, wax, epoxy, plastics, and of course, metal. Because this is a type of sand casting, it is best suited for producing castings without pronounced undercuts.
1. Fill and compact the Clay into one half of the aluminum ring frame
2. Remove excess clay with a straight edge (e.g. a flexible steel ruler)
3. Press your original pattern halfway into the clay.
4. Brush Mica Powder or talcum powder over this surface of the mold
5. Install the other half of the aluminum ring frame, fill with clay and compact
6. Open the ring frame and remove the pattern
7. Carve out a pouring channel and vents
8. Pour in liquid materials into The Delft Clay Casting

Includes
  • 4.4 lbs. Delft Clay

  • 2 – 60mm diameter Aluminum Ring Frame
