    @the king of random copper casting is notoriously fidgety, but you can stabilize the process by using either a die, or by burying the mould in the greensand and making a pour hole, the O2 actually causes your sand to slightly deform, burying it causes a less volatile reaction , you can also use nickel or Zinc in the alloy to slow down the cooling process, which will also help, steel at 440 grade in a powder or granulated form also will work if you use approximately a 1:9 steel/copper mix

    Hi, why don’t you mix some molass like the ancient were doing to cast iron. They were making a mold from sand mixed with molass and then put it in a oven to melt the styro and at the same time cook the molass to make the sand rock hard

    Your sand, needs to be coated (mixed with) clean (unused) industrial oil... Motor oil will work. But it must be clean

    Just pour the copper onto the foam. It’ll melt the foam and fill all the space with copper. Or leave legs on the foam and cover the tire thing with sand then pour the copper onto the leg and it’ll fill the mold easier
