 Trilobite

I have been wanting to make a fossil trilobite...here's what I came up with.

It's a paper weight cast in brass and is about 2-1/8 x 2-7/8".

January 2010

The photo series below shows the process of creating this piece. In the upper left is a photo I pulled off the internet.

Below it is a clay pattern I made. The lower right photo shows the final pattern made from a metal alloy that melts at

low temperatures. Clay patterns are very fragile and are only good to use to make a few molds so I always try to cast

a metal pattern as quickly as possible. The upper right shows the final casting.
