    You will need a DSLR Camera.
    A Shovel.
    Sand
    and pewter or any other material that your prefer.


    It's simply a matter of casting on the sand by drawing the blueprint and using water to keep the sand in shape. After your done, make sure you clean the sand and pour the mixture. Leave it and you're done.

    It would be one of those things that could turn to shit very easy though.

    I dont know what its called, but one form of casting i would like to try is you carve whatever you want out of wax. cover it in a ball of clay leaving a small hole in the bottom. then put it in a kiln to harden the clay and melt the wax out. then you grab a smelter. melt down what ever you want. gold, aluminium, bronze or lead. pour that into the clay mould and then wait for the metal to cool. smash the mould and done!
