Preparing Bronze Pour

image

The furnace is heating up and slowly melting the bronze. In the photo some of the bronze is warming on top.  Putting it all in at once takes a little longer to melt.
In the background of the photo the moulds have been dug into the sand to keep them steady and upright,  the pourcup mouths are covered with foil to stop sand or dust contamination of the mould.
The pour will happen around 11:30!
