Default Some recents casts

Here's a sample of my most recent casts. Some are for orders, some were experiments, and some were from people asking on IAP for someone to make a certain type of blank and even though I didn't make them one I still wanted to see if I could do it. All are Silmar 41 PR and mica powders. Here are the colors from Top left down then Top right down. Any comments critiques questions welcomed.
Left:
Irridescent Green and White
Midnight Blue and Cobalt Blue
Orange and Yellow
Purple and White
Cobalt Blue and Electric Blue
Green and Yellow (Trial at John Deere colors)
Right:
White and Red
Chocolate Brown and Minty Green (My wedding colors)
Hot Pink and Semi pearl Black
Black and Orange (Harley Davidson colors or just Halloween)
Cobalt Blue and Yellow (Blue Angels)
Multi Colored Gold

Thank you, I do like experimenting with the colors. I love that color yellow and orange...its just too bad my usual color place doesn't carry them. They were WAY more expensive than my usual place and for only 1/4tsp! I needed them for other blanks so I played with the rest.

We can trade off for alumilite instructions. I've got my pressure pot and everything, but no success so far (using PR for WW castings).
