Materials for Cuttlebone casting:

  • Cuttlebones: these can be purchased from bird suppliers and some jewelry suppliers. I get my medium to large bones from Great Companions online.
  • Metal: Scrap sterling silver from your studio or buy an ounce of sterling casting grain
  • Pencil

From your local hardware store:

  • Thin iron binding wire (20-24g,)
  • Dust Mask
  • Coarse sandpaper
  • Sand, pumice rocks, solder bricks, or clay kitty litter to hold cuttlebones propped up securely while casting
  • Carving tools like an X-acto knife or dental tools
  • Borax (20 Mule Team is available from the grocery store on the laundry detergent aisle.)
