lost zcorp casting

I'm teaching a casting class this semester and I'm getting ready to do a sprueing demo tomorrow. I figured it would be cool to do a lost wax casting experiment with the zcorp prints so today I whipped up a few rings to use as a test. I've done some zcorp print castings in the foundry in sculpture but never in the j&m studio. Should be interesting.

Eagerly awaiting the results of this! How does the plaster burn out?

The starch has to be vacumed out, but most of it falls out as the mold is placed hole/button/spruce side down.
