this is my home made personal geocoin in bronze

 

in the top it'S the beluga(qilalugaq).

on the bottom the magic owl (Upiq nuannertoq).

on the right it's the guillemot a miroir (Serfaq).

 

i work on this project since mars 2008

 

<moderator edit after discussion with the OP>

Reopened after communicating with the OP. This thread is to discuss the design of these handmade coins. It is not a sale or a trade thread.

in the back of the magic owl

we can see a igloo, my name, the name of the geocoin and maybe later a trackable number.

 

How long does it take to make these with the lost wax technique? 3 days.

How many do you make at one time? one mold for each pieces but i can do 30 pieces each times.

Also, where is saguenay? in province of Quebec and 200km in the north of Quebec city

DUDE... I love your coin!!! :anicute: REALLY! That is just sweet!

 

I really like the back just as much as the front! I think I like the owl best too, the Beluga is cool cuz I like(d) to go diving! :o Not that I ever see one, but it reminds me of a time when all I saw was a Dark Blur commin right at me that looked like Beluga and just turned out to be a Harbor Seal screwin with me :)

 

Really though...they turned out nice

How do you melt the metal? I assume you have a gas-fired forge, maybe?

 

How do you make the molds and out of what material? Soapstone?

second question: i scult a model in paris plaster after i make a silicone mold.

 

for the bronze coin i use the lost wax technic.

for the aluminum coin i use the petrobond.
