Andrew's forte' of expertise lies in MOLDmaking. Recently Andrew is trying his hand at sandblasting as well and plans to "create" a very special item which will be included in the charity auction.

I was using smooth cast-45D flexible urethane to do some test casts in the ODST molds I acquired from another 405th member.
I totally forgot that smooth-on had the brush able urethane.
as for painting flexible urethane you cannot just spray p...aint it
as it will crack & flake off.I asked smooth-on about this andThe frog was cast into a Smooth-Sil 910 mold, making release agent unnecessary. If a release agent were used, it would need to be thoroughly removed from the piece using an appropriate solvent before a casting could be painted.

Lost Wax Castings by Robin Grattidge (Robin St Graves)

Now at The Green Man: Lost Wax Castings ~ Fine Art Bronze & Stainless Steel Decorative Metal Castings

These castings are gravity fed, lost wax investment castings, done with a technology that dates back 4,000 years. The figures are worked up in wax and invested in a ceramic material. The wax is then burned out and the molten metal is poured into the hollow shell or "investment". Once the metal has cooled and the ceramic material removed, then begins the grinding and polishing process.

Robin Grattidge (Robin St Graves) ~ Owner of Acts of Piracy, Medieval Fantasies and Bronze Zeppelin, is a graduate of California State University at Dominguez Hills, where he studied Fine Art & Design. Robin, commonly known in the field as an Itinerant Metal Mongre, exhibits his artisan craft all over the United States. He first began producing bronze and stainless steel decorative metal castings in 1990. Since then he has produced hundreds of images in the medium and has over 500 molds in use at his waxworks studio.

Robin is also a healer, and practices a variety of forms of divination.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
