23.10.14 More casting

Carried on with the second rubber mould of the yam 2 and finished it tonight, so should be able to wax it tomorrow.  Now working on the Muramura plant – decided to cut off the leaves (11 in total) and separately invest these, coating them in wax and then welding them on to the stem separately later.  We have waxed the stem and the few remaining leaves at the top and so will invest these separately in the hope that it will all burn out satisfactorily.  David and Emmanuel suggest two pouring cups top and bottom of the piece – the main pouring cup mounted to one side of the stem to equally distribute the molten bronze down to the very end of the plant.  Hope it works.
