Just wondering if anyone uses SW models to then invest, burnout then cast?
I took a FUD model to my local casting house, there were issues in the burnout process that left porosity in the final piece...he told me he had successfully cast models from SW previously but that it had been WSF.
Just wondering if anyone has tried other materials, personally I would like my models to have a higher level of detail than WSF, but FUD is proven to be risky.
..or maybe its better to simply get a Silver or Stainless master and silicone mold it straight from there?
Interested to hear what other casters have tried...
