Lovecraft  Tokens in Pewter by zombiequadrille Lovecraft  Tokens in Pewter by zombiequadrille
These are about 1 3/8" wide and cast in pewter. The reverse is blank. They are supposed to be symbols of the Lovecraft Mythos. 1. Organic Derleth Elder Sign. 2. Derleth Elder Sign. 3. Cthulhu. 4. Lovecraft Elder Sign. 5. Cthulhu in R'Lyeh. These are my first efforts to cast metal.

Thanks. The originals were made with sculpey, though I've used Monster Clay (wax) also. Melted metal is a little tricky because it has surface tension that keeps it from going into tiny detailed places. I think jewelry makers use a centrifuge of some kind. I found out I couldnt just pour these into a flat mold (which would have been nice since they have a blank side), but the details just wouldnt come out. So I ended up making a two piece mold and let the weight of the pewter itself help push the metal into the details. I hope that made sense.

Thanks. After trying out working with low temp pewter I have a lot of respect for people who work with molten metals.
