This skull has so many possibilities. It would look great with a finish added, maybe a hammered finish, or maybe a shiny polish.Casting copper is not an easy process and to see how I do it here is a recent video: https://youtu.be/rwFgRMSQ74s* Cast in 100% recycled copper which was purchased as scrap from a Tucson scrap yard.* The skull measures just over an inch from chin to back of head x almost 3/4 inch wide. The metal thickness is about 2.5 mm so it's very well made!This is an unfinished casting which I have cast, cleaned, and lightly pickled. I've just cut the sprue down to the casting but haven't filed it off.
