I got my brass powder in the mail and worked out a couple belt buckles last night. If you’ve seen the Dinosaur Belt Buckle in my gallery, say “bye bye” cuz he’s getting an upgrade! I give you… Cold Cast BRASS dinosaur belt buckle!
It’s still made with the same liquid plastic compound but with the addition of the brass powder. It’s the real deal so it’s about the same weight as brass too. The results look great… in fact, if your interested in a a brass dinosaur skull buckle let me know, I will be making a few more. Drop me a line, these handsome handmade buckles are priced at $80.00 (tax and shipping included).
If youd like to learn more about the process, here is a link to the Smooth-On Cold Cast demonstration. They’ve got fancy stirring cups and everything!
The buckles I’ve made tend to be a faster process than the lighters. The same amount of detail goes in, but in half the time since there’s only one viewable side. So feel free to share any ideas you may have for a custom belt buckle.
Artists, have you ever wanted to see your design in metal but couldn’t afford a foundry? Let me help.
