I’ve been playing with my elk calls a lot lately. I’ve got the Alumilite casting process figured out and they are sounding really good! I’m still toying with shapes, but i really like how these are turning out!
I added this new Glow In the Dark Alumilite pendant to the Etsy Shop this morning. I finished her yesterday, in a Sterling frame to match the tone of her recycled Aircraft Aluminum that is her "skeleton". . This material is both fun and "classy" in a appearence, I like that combimation in a "gal" 😉. If you would like to see more, then please follow the link posted in my bio section here on IG 🛩Thank You🛩
Believe it or not I found this piece of very old and weathered Burl in my backyard. I stabilized it, and cast it, and it was a hidden beauty. It must be buckeye burl, but I’m not sure. The other pieces I have might need to be double stabilized, as some alumilite seeped into pores that should have cactus juice instead. Still think it looks sweet. #knifemaking#woodworking#penblanks#resinart#resin#resincasting#alumilite
#alumilite experiment #2 . This one has no wood in it, just resin with gold powder and resin with blue powder poured together. I need to work on my pouring technique because non of the blue survived... they mixed together too much.
Well here is my first #elkcall made with some worthless red cedar and #alumilite cast together. I leaned a lot on this one. I used too much dye and the blue resin looks almost black. But it’s still awesome and I’m hooked! Time to make some more!!
