Cuttlefish Bone
Cuttlefish bone is an organic material used to make soft molds for casting
small pieces without undercuts. The cuttlebone withstands quite high
temperatures and is porous enough to help air in the mold escape. Use
binding wire to secure the matched halves together before pouring the
molten metal. Made in the USA.

Matt’s Casting Flux™
A staple for casters, Matt’s flux begins fluxing at a lower temperature than
borax, yet continues to flux at a higher temperature than boric acid. It’s
pH-balanced at fluxing temperatures to increase crucible life and help
dissolve oxides in the metal. Also good for glazing new crucibles.
Please Note:
Not compatible with anti-firescale silver casting grain.
Made in the USA.
