completed level molds

I went to the studio yesterday and split my molds, pulled out the foam and wax, cut sprues and risers, burned in the remaining wax with a heat gun, put graphite in the mold, banded and clamped the molds. I was able to save an extra day by being able to pull the waxes out by hand (I thought I was going to have to burn all of the wax in overnight due to the delicate forms). The sand was actually quite durable and the waxes came out easy; good to know for the future. Everything is buttoned up and ready to pour.
