Something I made for lil’ Tony Stark

I did a test pour of pewter (so it’s not really “Iron Man”… more of a “Bismuth/Tin Alloy Man”) into the mold I made of a Lego mini-fig that I think turned out very nicely. I don’t know yet exactly what my plans are in terms of mounting (ie. necklace, keychain, whatever) and if I’m going to customize it, but I’m very happy with how the quality turned out. More pictures after the break.

    I love this! I would definitely wear it as a pendant, and I’d love to see it with something engraved onto the shirt.

    Yeah, it has potential. I’ve been thinking about all the options. I was also considering picking up some metalclay so that I could cast it in sterling silver or even gold. Thinking about the best way to do some gem sets as well.

    I think they would make great cuff links, if people still wear those.

    I’m reminded of this:

    I’ve since thought that there’s gotta be a way of making a piece that would clip in between the head and body of a lego man to extend the neck and make them a bit more wearable as plugs.

    This is so cool. Im really interested in learning how to cast things like this. Can you recommend any good websites, online guides or ebooks, Shannon?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
