Welcome to Strange Grain by Jeweler Will Barnes.

Update: The cyber skull was a success

I’m stoked that it cast well. I had been trying to narrow down an issue with my kiln program and finally nailed down the proper cool down rate, from 1350•F – 1050•F without getting an error.

There were a few parts of the fine details that didn’t come out, but I fixed the spots by adding transistors to the electrodes that didn’t cast.

I’m super happy with the results. I’ll post a photo or two once it’s finished.
