Cast Flasks

Worked on making these this weekend.  They make a 9 x 12 flask when completed.  In the photo is a couple of short pours/screw-ups.  There were actually 2 more, but I cut those up and remelted them.  I was having problems with casting the long side.  I think the problem was that I wasn't pouring fast enough and the metal solidified before the mold was filled.  I poured one this morning (the one on the far right) pouring it as fast as I could and it turned out fine.  Now I need to make two more long ones and I'll have enough for a complete set.
