Cold Casting Voltron Coins

Reading Time: 1 minute

voltroncoin-setCold casting is a really cool technique to get metal effects with plastic goods. It’s a bit easier, safer, and cheaper than casting actual metal. In this video, I continue what I learned in my Mold Making 101 and apply it to cold casting to make this set of coins based on Voltron: Legendary Defender.

This is the first part of my cold casting video set. I’ve made some realistic looking Voltron coins (now available in my store) but wanted to try cold casting versus making them out of actual metal. I hope you enjoy following along on my little experiment as I compare Smooth-On’s Cast Magic Silver Bullet and their aluminum powder.

Supplies Used:
Smooth Cast 325
Smooth Cast 300
So Strong Tint
Aluminum Powder
Mixing Cups and stirring sticks
Chip brushes

I hope you enjoy the video. I plan to make a lot more of these types of videos. My patrons get early access to my videos and tutorials along with behind the scenes work-in-progress photos, polls to vote on what I’ll do next and, at some levels, special handmade goodies.
