Middle School Tech teacher Peter Richards in Decatur, Georgia each year has had his students cast and paint a Series 24 Medieval Chess Set which they then auction off at an annual festival. The money raised is used for a scholarship fund and last year it raised $950. An example of foundry work being fun, creative, a learning experience for the students, and profitable for the school. See the students pictures and comments below.

Materials for Mold Making and Foundry CastingMold Making Foundry Casting

Memo to Tech & Engineering instructors of Middle School, High School and Universities: Students who become familiar with Mold Making and Foundry Techniques will be able to apply these skills later in useful industrial applications. The fabrication of prototypes and short run sample productions will be easy and fast to complete. Your students will find knowledge of these projects creative, fun, and very worthwhile.

Since 1976 we have offered casting and mold making materials to formerly Industrial Arts Departments and now to Tech and Engineering instructors of Middle and High Schools.

We offer 2 easy to use Mold Making Materials:

1. Quick-Sil - 2 part, clean silicone putty. Your students can produce a long lasting rubber mold that will accept up to 900 degrees F casting metal in less than 30 minutes. The flexibility of our Quick-Sil' can allow undercuts making the removal of a casting possible without tearing the mold.

0% Shrinkage!


No careful and precise mixing
needed-just take equal handfuls!
RTV A&B
Mixing is easy and simple!

 

If you want to get started using "Quick-Sil" we recommend either:
 

Starter Kit
50000  that contains 2.2lbs. Part A&B "Quick-Sil",  a versatile Wood Mold Frame Box, Mold Release cream and one lb. synthetic clay. 
Starter Kit 52000 which contains all of the above but instead of the wood box an aluminum mold frame (3"x5x1") allowing a two-part mold to be made in one
15
minute shot.
