been doodling (only thing i can really do while on percocet ) and i have an idea for a coin i would like to replicate. i have some pot metal, and i have some slight talent, and can get some silicone.
only problem i am having is how in the world do i do a coin with both sides? a one sided coin is easy, but the 2 sided looks like its going to be a pain. i was thinking of a small "vent" hole to let the metal go in, and another "air" hole and just sorta snap the excess metal off when i demold it. that might be kinda hard to go since this coin is going to be a little thin. not the giant 3/16" wide that i think molten metal needs to flow properly.
so.... any ideas on this? im a little lost. i know i am probably missing something obvious but like i said, doodling and cant wrap my head around this one.
i do plan to sculpt the coin, or maybe recast a coin that i modify with a slightly different "back". and no, this isnt a POTC coin or any movie prop related coin. its from a book. just wanna make that clear.
any advice is welcome
