Welcome to my FlamingFurnace, backyard metal casting blog.

Hi everyone, I mainly focus on metal casting projects using recycled scrap aluminum and other accessories in the pattern creations.
Aluminum is a very versatile material and I would like to promote the awareness of aluminum recycling via different metal casting projects.

Feel free to check my YouTube channel where I provide detailed explanations, tips & tutorials for best backyard aluminum casting methods, homemade foundry equipment & of course the importance of safety when working with molten aluminum.

So remember recycle and Enjoy my blog ;-)

How To Make - Solid Aluminum Ghost Mask - Halloween Decoration ♻

In this video I have created a solid aluminum ghost mask for Halloween and a small mummy statue, I started with a plastic ghost mask like the one in the horror movie Scream, I created the pattern using plaster and varnish (to prevent the sand from sticking and to get better casting results). The solid aluminum ghost mask turned out amazing.
All my aluminum, castings are done using a homemade furnace and scrap aluminum. So as always my main message is to create awareness of recycling and to inspire to try and re-use ♻
