Pyramid project kickoff

I cast up my first set of blocks for my Aztec pyramid project today. I borrowed a couple of Hirst Arts molds from a friend – the basic block set. While I work on the overall design I’ll be casting up a whole pile of blocks for this.

The Hirst Arts web site has a few recommendations for casting material, but I didn’t feel like buying the stuff online so I went down to Joanne’s and found some stuff called Permastone. It casts white, accepts fine details really well, and the blocks came out looking very sharp. I’m really pleased with the results. A 28 oz. box was $6.99 and I had a coupon for 40% off so I got a deal.

These came out better than I expected


Gonna need a lot of these


Really kind of surprised at how well these fit together

I’ll post more pics as the project goes along!
