Dear Hivemind, I am soon to be casting a set of bronze pommels and crossguards. I am going to be using ceramic shell and lost wax to do this hopefully. As it happens I have a basic idea of what I need but as I have never made a refractory slurry before I don't know exactly what I need and in what ratios. I have been looking at sourcing raw materials and this is what I think from exhaustive googling that I might go for: https://www.artisanfoundry.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=281 And https://www.artisanfoundry.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=142 My question to the omniscient lot of you is... do I just mix these two together and bam, I have a refractory slurry, then each dip add fine sand, allow to dry, then repeat? Are these not ideal for small bronze castings? Is there something easier/cheaper/better? Thank you for any advice you can give! James
