Tofte Fish Project
This is ceramic shell coat #9 on the lake trout. One more coat of the slurry, let dry, de-wax, Vitrify molds at 1800 degrees for an hour, check the molds for cracks, patch if needed, pour bronze into the molds, chill, break off the mold material, cut off the extra metal, design and manufacture a system for mounting, sand blast, patina, and finally wax the finished bronzes. Then build the net that the fish will be mounted to.....see, nothing to it.
