Casting Whimsy: Pewter Solo cup

July 2014

As a bit of whimsy and in an effort to try to cast something large and three dimensional I took it upon myself as a challenge to create a pewter Solo cup.

This was my first attempt and while I intend to return to perfect this at some point, the Mk I version ended up weighing ~4 lbs of pewter and may have had some issues with leaking. But it was fun, and I was able to gift a friend of mine a cup that could double as deadly weapon, and could be used in emergency to pound tent stakes.
