    My boyfriend graduated college with an associates degree, he loves to collect pewter figurines like dragons, wizards, fairies etc. I really want to do something special for him and get a figurine of him made as a wizard! the figurine would be 4 1/2"- 5" tall. I really want it to be pewter. seeing as I know nothing about this stuff I need estimates on the cost as well so I know how much I need. He worked really hard to accomplish this goal so I want him to have something that will really mean something to him, I've tried so many places this is like the last place I have. Thank you for taking the time to read and for any consideration on the project!

    You would need to make a two part mold out of something high temp. It would be costly to do a one off. The cheapest route that you could go is probably a mold made from a high temp silicone. It would require a model to mold and then someone with some basic smelting tools to melt and pour the pewter. So... probably at least $200 dollars and a whole lot of trial and error and/or favors.
